Then a great and powerful wind
tore the mountains apart
and shattered the rocks before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in the wind.
After the wind was an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake.
After the earthquake came a fire,
but the Lord was not in the fire.
And after the fire
came a gentle whisper....

God's Whisper 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Maybe your world is falling apart and you are between a rock and a hard place.The wind may be your troubles keeping you up at night.
The wind may be your sleepless, restless nights. The earthquake may be your trembling with fears. You are on shaky ground. The earth beneath your feet is giving way.You’re slipping, falling….
The Fire is testing, maybe a fever, stress, troubles, inescapable fears….But God is the answer to your prayers, God is with you, be still and calm and listen! LISTEN FOR GOD’S WHISPER.
Be joyful always,
give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 adapted
The Lord himself goes before you
and will be with you;
he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid;
do not be discouraged.”
