When we ache for guidance, when we search for answers, when we look around to find a meaning to the ceaseless activity, it is just possible that the clues and the answers are all around us. Perhaps if we listen, and with faithful ears we can hear, that still small voice:
The Lord Speaks to Elijah at Horeb: 1 Kings 19
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
So much is packed into this verse. Atheists and agnostics will never acknowledge a higher order operating here. It will not exist for them. They will feel the wind, see the rocks brake, and tremble with the earthquake. The still small voice will be mere ringing in the ears from the aftermath of the earthquake.
But as our Paul said: “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.” Life? Faith? Voice from God? Lunacy? As some one wrote: “Faith is a direct awareness of a process through which one expands the world of truth, will, and feeling.”
Perhaps the voice comes from a world beyond this one. Perhaps it is the voice of ultimate reality. Perhaps it is God inviting you to join him in his cosmic dance.
