Seeking God in Chaos

"11 Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the LORD,

but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake,

but the LORD was not in the earthquake; 12 and after the earthquake a fire,

but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. " -1 Kings 19:11-12

Life gets chaotic. Let us remember that we need to daily take time to stop what we are doing and hear God's voice. Even if it means waking up earlier, going to bed later, or just waiting one more day to _____ (fill in the blank) so we can sit down with God, and hear what He desires to teach us. Sure we can pray without ceasing during our chaotic days- and we should, and yes the Lord is with us always, but if we don't take time to listen to His still small voice then we will surely been worn out more easily and we will go to bed with hungry spirits. Beloved let us remember who our hearts belong to, and why we are here anyways.

"Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him." -Psalm 2:12
