The Still, Small Voice

Posted on

Our first reading from 1 Kings 19 is so poignant for us in today’s world. We read the story of Elijah hearing the voice of God…though not in the way one might think He would come. More on that in a moment. For the Gospel, back in the Sermon on the Mount, where Jesus continues to raise the bar on us regarding thinking about sin. Take the time to read and reflect!

There are so many different ways that God speaks to us. He uses the Liturgy, the Scriptures. Sometimes we’ll hear Him speak to us through a song, or maybe through the voice of another person. After all, He’s God! He can use whatever He pleases!

There are so many things vying for our attention these days. Everyone is screaming and shouting at us – TV, radio (oh, no!), Internet, billboards…you name it, they want you! Elijah experienced the same thing. A mighty wind, earthquake, fire; but none of these contained the voice of God. No, he heard it in the silence, in that tiny whispering sound, that “still, small voice.” And chances are, that’s where we’ll hear Him, too. If we take the time.

Father, thank you for speaking to us in whispers. Help us today to block out all the noise, that we may hear Your voice. Amen.

    Gus, good day to you. I am new to your show on XM radio but I am becoming a fan. Thank you for sharing today and reminding us about the still small voice. This world is busy and full of hate and nonsense and your reflections are very helpful. Praying for you and your family, especially your mom. ♡Jesus I trust in you!♡
