In 1 Kings 19, God reveals Himself, not in an earthquake or other “big” ways, but in a small whisper. Too many times in life we get caught up in trying to find God in the spectacular events and happenings. How have you paused and thanked God after seeing His hand at work in something relatively “little” or “mundane?
If you’re a man or woman of faith, it’s usually easy to see the hand of God in your life when something major happens. It could be a healing from an injury or illness, a relationship restored, surviving a horrific accident with minor injuries, an answer to a financial crisis. It’s likely that you are filled with gratitude and acknowledgement of God’s hand in those circumstances. But what about those little ways in which He blesses you? Maybe a family member or friend calls on a day when you’re really having a tough time. Or you get a letter or an e-mail offering a word of encouragement. Perhaps there’s been something you’ve been wanting or needing to fall into place, and all of a sudden, there it is. Tell us about a moment in your life when you had to pause, take a breath and say, “Wow, that was really cool. Thank you, God.”
