In the book of 1 Kings chapter 19 verses 11-12, God reveals Himself to Prophet Elijah in a still small voice. In the previous verses, we find Elijah feeling depressed and overwhelmed by the threat of death from Queen Jezebel.
After getting refreshed by God, he journeyed to Mount Horeb, where God appeared to him. It is noteworthy that God did not appear in the mighty wind that tore the rocks to pieces. Neither did He appear in the earthquake or the fire that followed; but in a still small voice.
What is my point? Sometimes God does not reveal Himself in mighty acts, but in simple everyday day activities that we could easily take for granted. The other day I felt God reveal Himself to me in a rainbow. I’d been having a tough time for a couple of days. I was feeling misunderstood and my hormones/thoughts were all over the place. To worsen matters I felt alone and could not confide in anyone because I didn’t know what their reactions would be. Of course I prayed and cried to God for help. I also spoke words of faith and quoted Bible verses, but sometimes the dark cloud may linger a while.
I knew it was the Lord encouraging me and reminding me of His Presence and nearness. It was a very tangible demonstration of His great love and I became ‘normal’ afterwards.
