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 ~ Drenched in Riches of Divine Grace {#Morevember}

"Are you this morning thirsting for the living God and unhappy because you cannot find Him to the delight of your heart? Have you lost the joy of thy salvation, and is this your prayer, "Restore to my the joy of thy salvation"? Are you anxious also that you are barren, like the dry ground; that you are not bringing forth the fruit unto God . . . that you are not so useful in the Church or in the world as your heart desires to be? Then here is exactly the promise that you need: " I will pour water upon him that is thirty." You shall receive the grace you so much require, and you shall have it to the utmost reach of your needs. Water refreshes the thirsty: You shall be refreshed; your desires shall be gratified. Water quickens sleeping vegetable life: Your life shall be quickened by fresh grace. Water swells the buds and makes the fruits ripen; you shall have the fructifying grace; you shall be made fruitful in the ways of God. Whatever good quality there is in divine grace, you shall enjoy it to the full. All the riches of divine grace you shall receive in plenty; you shall be it as it were drenched with it; and sometimes the meadows become flooded by the bursting rivers and the fields are turned into pools, so shall you be--the thirsty land shall be springs of water." 
~Charles Spurgeon
