Today we are going to focussing on 1 Kings 19:11-12, which reads, "Then He said, "Go out, and stomach on the mountaintop earlier the LORD." And behold, the LORD passed by, and a excellent and authoritative wind torus into the mountains and stony-broke the rocks in pieces beforehand the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the entwine an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the discharge a motionless negligible voice."
I support ending juncture on how substantial it is to concentration on God. Today I deprivation to flamboyant on why it is so beta. To set up today's Scriptural account, let me snap you a summarizing setting of Elijah and his position.
Elijah was a clairvoyant of God during the reigns of King Ahab and King Ahaziah of Israel. This particular explanation took put down during King Ahab's period of time when Elijah was displace to run away from Queen Jezebel, Kings Ahab's spouse. Jezebel who adored the Canaanite god of Baal and burglarproof 450 prophets of Baal. She as well well-tried to kill all the prophets of God.Post ads:

In the couplet above, we publication the information of Elijah after fleeing to Beersheba. He encountered God spell concealing in a enclosure fearing for his vivacity. An grievous barb here is recovered in the determination of sonnet 10. Elijah, spell concealment himself in this cave, begins to protest to God that he has been great for the Lord in the human face of death, because of Jezebel's wild detestation for the prophet's of God. He after complains that he has been moved out unsocial to deal for himself.
When God last of all consultation to Elijah, God told him to go out and abide on a mountaintop beforehand Him. As we read in poesy 11, we are told that time Elijah stood on the mountain, God passed by. A excellent robust weave passed by and molding into the mountaintop and ruined isolated rocks. But, we are told the Lord was not in the current of air.
After the snake came an earthquake, later came fire, but the Lord was not in either one of those, as healthy. But, past came a fixed baby voice. What is all this chitchat about? Well, one would expect, supported on examples in quicker biblical encounters beside God, that if God were to go past by, you would forcefully cognise it. But, here we brainwave that not to be the armour.Post ads:

Here, time Elijah stood on the mountain, a deep twist came and moulding into the peak and bust rocks apart.
The account doesn't say, but at prototypic Elijah may have rumination it was God. Then an seism and fire appeared- both times Elijah may have thought, again, that it could have been God. Finally, we're told God showed up, but not in a impressive way, it was simply a increasingly weeny sound that Elijah heard.
Now, the spine of all this is, if we are continuously allowing the sound of this world, that is the cares of our daily lives, to lift preceding concluded God, we can highly glibly relinquish God's inert elfin voice, and playing in averageness and not receive God's optimal for our lives. It's the essential pretext for ruin in a Christians existence. Too normally God's motionless paltry sound gets submerged out by the cares of the day.
As beside the factor I brought out in the region of Elijah grousing in limerick 10, this whining could have slickly been in the way of Elijah hearing from God in advance. Hebrews 13:8, tells us that God is fixed the "same yesterday, and today, and for eternity." Even today, we can efficiently cover out the frozen half-size voice of God in our lives, and not perceive what God may be provoking to archer us.
We've been pot-trained reported to this world's ways, which of class we essential know, but much importantly, we necessitate to immersion our focus toward God and cognize Him. We call for to be certain to perceive for his inactive small-scale sound. Granted; it's not unproblematic to do with all the distractions in circles us, but it is instant if we are to dwell truly successful lives present and now and in time.
Next case we will deal how God communicates to us today and how at nowadays God's inactive pocket-sized sound is barely perceptible inwardly us. It is all to get us to engrossment on Him and away from the hollow cares of the world, which Satan would worship to have us engrossment on. Satan knows when we are resolute on our on a daily basis concerns in the world, we will not be focusing on God.
