MAN CHURCH – Thursday Assignment:
READ: 1 Kings 19.1– 13 First Kings 19: 1– 13 details the story of the prophet Elijah hearing God’s voice not in a mighty wind, an earthquake or a raging fire, but in what the text calls a “gentle whisper.”
We serve a communicating God — a God of words. [Throughout Scripture, he] created with a word, he healed with a word, he encouraged with a word, he rebuked with a word, he guided with a word , he prophesied with a word, he assured with a word, he loved with a word, he served with a word and he comforted with a word. Throughout all of history, God has communicated, and he still is at it today. The issue isn’t whether or not God is speaking; it’s whether we will have ears to hear what he says.”
Take a minute and meditate on this – When have you heard the “gentle whisper” of God in your own life? And how would you react on it today?
