Listening for God's Voice:
1 Kings chapters 17 - 19
After a very long desert moment, and another forty days and forty nights of running through the desert Elijah comes to a cave; strengthened by God, and verses twelve and thirteen of chapter nineteen say, “after the fire came a gentle whisper, or a gentle silence and stillness. When Elijah heard it he covered his head with his cloak—he braced for what was about to happen, and he went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. And then a voice said to him, what are you doing here Elijah?” The voice of God came to Elijah when all was still and quiet.
We learn a very important lesson from this story. Yes, God comes in power. Yes, God comes in fire. God comes in revival and gives us mountain top experience like Elijah on Mount Carmel. But God also comes in the gentle stillness when no one else is around, and we can’t handle the situation around us. And often times, that’s the only time that we can truly hear His voice.
Dr. Jeren Rowell, President of Nazarene Theological Seminary wrote about this in his book; Thinking, Listening, and Being. He explained that we can hear the voice of God, and draw close to Him by, “the disciplines of space and time.” He says, we “Protect prayer as our first work, by not only going everywhere with Jesus, but also by carving out intentional times for retreat from the noise and distractions of contemporary life, following the pattern of our Lord.”
We see this in the life of Jesus over and over. Mark 1:35 “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place where he prayed.” Luke 5:15-16 “News about Jesus spread all the more, so that the crowds of people came near to him to be healed. But Jesus often retreated to the wilderness, and He prayed.”
If we want to hear the voice of God and be equipped to face the obstacles of life that we can’t handle on our own, we must know the heart and will of God, and therefore we must be intentional about spending time with God, we must be diligent and persistent, and we must be accountable.
1. What are some different ways we can be intentional to create time and space with God?
2. How can we stay diligent and accountable to create space and time for God?
3. Are we willing to do whatever it takes to create space and time to hear God's voice?
