“One thing I have asked from the Lord, that will I seek after- for me to dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to see the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple.” Psalm 27:4 (MEV)
Elijah was escaping from the hands of queen Jezebel and was led by the angel of God to the mountain to speak to God. The Bible records that a great wind came, but God was not in the wind. Then an earthquake-God was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake, a fire. But God was not in the fire. After, the fire, a still small voice. That’s where God was found: in the simple, small, quiet and ordinary.
There’s something new God is showing me in my life; something I’m embracing the whole way now.
LORD, I’m choosing to follow this way You’re carving for me. I’m choosing to take everything in the little doses You let me experience each day and each moment. Drop by drop. Piece by piece. In little portions. Little seed sized faith to little seed sized faith.
I’m not going to seek the great wind or the earthquake or the fire. It’s faith to faith and its mustard seed-sized. I don’t know why, but it is in the little, quiet, humble and ordinary that I find You- that I hear You clearly and experience You fully. It’s like You like to dwell in the mustard seed-sized ordinary moments.
Now I’ll be quiet like a weaned child. We’ll wait together. I hear You, LORD.
