Daily Devotional - Hearing from God

But the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind 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 fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice. 
—1 Kings 19:11–12
God speaks in a still, small voice. If you want to hear from Him, create a quiet, peaceful, strife-free atmosphere, and set apart regular time to fellowship with Him there. He may not always speak what you want to hear, or in the way you might think that He would, but don’t get discouraged—God will lead you. He rarely lets us in on His entire plan at the beginning.
Obey what you sense in your heart that you are to do, and when He is ready He will show you the next thing. And always remember to be thankful. As you do, you will find your sensitivity to God’s voice increasing. He will speak to you, and you can hear from Him. Just get quiet and listen, and expect Him to lead you in all that you do.
Power Thought: I can hear the still, small voice of God.
