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)

Spoken to Us

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
(Heb 1:1-3)

As we are on this side of the Christmas season, is it easy to get back into routine, keeping busy with the daily activities that consume our time? Let us not forget the most important things! We have been given the greatest gift! God has spoken to us by His Son! Elijah heard the soft gentle voice of Jehovah; we have the incarnate, preeminent One.

I am challenged to learn more of God's revelation to us. I am challenged to use my time more wisely to meditate more on the One who "is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature". God has revealed Himself in His Son. He is Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer. He is my Lord and Saviour.

God, Who in Various Methods Told

God, who in various methods told
His mind and will to saints of old,
Sent down His Son, with truth and grace,
To teach us in these latter days.

God’s kindest thoughts are here expressed,
Able to make us wise and bless’d;
The doctrines are divinely true,
Fit for reproof and comfort, too.

Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
