After the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper. (1 Kings 19:12, NLT)
In the Bible, God used all kinds of vehicles to speak to people where they lived, worked, and operated.
God spoke to Moses in a burning bush on the side of a mountain. “Take off your sandals. You’re standing on holy ground,” He said when giving orders to the prince-turned-shepherd to lead the Hebrews out of slavery (Exodus 3).
God spoke to Paul in a bright light on a deserted road. ”Why are you persecuting Me?” He asked the fanatical young Pharisee, who later became one of the world’s most fruitful missionaries (Acts 9).
God spoke to Elijah through a whisper in a cave. “What are you doing here?” He wanted to know. He energized the discouraged prophet and sent him back to work (1 Kings 19).
People can best hear a message in the place where they live and work and operate: Moses gathering sheep on a rocky mountainside, Paul racing to Damascus on a dusty road, Elijah fleeing from a murderous queen.
