Have You Had Your Coffee Yet?

“…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 there 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. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave…” (1 Kings 19:11-13, NIV)

Does this sound at all familiar to you? You woke up a half hour late. An accident on the freeway held you up another thirty minutes. You walk into your workplace, your boss is screaming about deadlines, you’re not prepared for a meeting that is about to begin in several minutes, there’s an unhappy client on the phone needing urgently to speak with you, the order you placed last week still hasn’t been shipped, and you haven’t even had your first cup of coffee.

This scenario is way too common. The events may be different, but the result is the same. Somewhere between the time we wake up and the time we have our first cup of coffee, we need to take a deep breath, relax, and invite the Lord into our day. It’s only during this quiet time that we will hear His “gentle whisper”. Slow down, allow God to speak to you. Don’t allow the pressures of your day to get the better part of you. Give that part to the Lord!

Enjoy your Wednesday, “Working for Christ”!

    The Bible quote reveals something very true.. God can never be found in the chaos of this world. He will appear in a peaceful calmness that overcomes any trouble whether it be of the mind or of the world. Nice job!

    Gob bless u!
