God’s Voice in Quiet Moments

When you live in a fast-moving city, it might be difficult to find quality time to rest and listen to your body. Yet, it is very important that we take time to listen to ourselves. The body tells us a lot about us on a particular day. When we are feeling happy, tired, successful, etc our bodies sculpture that information within us. Interestingly, God speaks to us through diverse channels. The body is simply one of His several channels. If we do not take time to listen to our bodies, we might miss important messages from God. It could be late in the evening when it is quite and still, or in the wee hours of the morning, or when taking a bath that we might find a brilliant time to listen to our bodies. It is important that we stop running, and listen. Often, God uses a small still voice to communicate something important to us. If we are always busy, we will not hear that voice. Elijah, a man of God, almost missed God’s voice because he went looking for God in the violent winds, earthquake and fire. Yet, God was not in those noisy incidents. In the midst of loud incidents, God called Elijah in a small still voice, and Elijah heard Him because he had made time to meet with God in the mountains (1 Kings 19: 11-13). Let’s create one-on-one time with God daily, even if it is only for a few minutes! It is important for our souls as well as our own well-being.
