(1 Kings 19-20, John 2)
And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. (1 Kings 19:12)
God is often found in the small things. Many times He’s in the overlooked things. He hides Himself in the mundane. He cloaks Himself in the ordinary. If we only look for God in the glory, we will miss most of what He longs to reveal about Himself.
I have had wonderful seasons of being set apart solely for the purpose of seeking out God. And like parents everywhere, I have had long seasons where there was hardly a moment to catch my breath, let alone find time to be alone with God. It’s in the latter seasons that I discovered a wonderful truth: God is in it all. He’s present in the night feedings. He’s gloriously present as I grocery shop for my family. He’s always ready to be found by us, whether we have pulled away to avoid all distractions, or are utterly surrounded by the noise of life.
Praise God for church services and prayer closets. Praise God for worship conferences and intimate retreats. Praise God for time set apart and time invested in others. He’s in it all. He’s in it all! He’s in stadiums and the cry of a newborn. There is now no condemnation in Christ! He has made every season holy. He has made every season glorious.
