I Kings 19:1-18, Elijah in the wilderness. Shortly after a marvelous triumph when GOD burned a sacrifice of bulls and Baal worship was discredited, Elijah fled threats from Jezebel. Elijah prayed to die and seemed to blame himself for the failure of others. GOD appeared to Elijah not through powerful wind, an earthquake or fire. HE came to Elijah as a gentle whisper.
Many of us would LOVE to have an epiphany, a dramatic visit from GOD. But, it seems that GOD works quietly in our lives, though encouragement and support from others. So, as you play solitaire this Saturday night, listen for that gentle whisper. Or provide it for another!
And remember that all is loss, compare to knowing Christ! Phillipians 3:1-11
