Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Words of Wisdom for the Weekend: Silence





*****
"  . . . the true can afford to be quiet and finds silence to be its wisdom. Evidently our Lord, by Himself, furnished a remarkable fulfillment of prophecy. A long defense of Himself would have been contrary to Isaiah's prediction. 'He is led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.' By His quiet, He conclusively proved Himself to be the true Lamb of God. As such we salute Him this morning. Be with us, Jesus, and in the silence of our heart, let us hear the voice of Thy love."

~ Charles Spurgeon 'Morning by Morning'

  1. Being wise is a good thing... both momentarily in our world and visionarily in our world. Wisdom keeps us moving in the God-path. Very important.
