"Turn down the Noise and Turn up the Spirit of Peace"

Praise Adonai - 2014 Highlights

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.

God brings the spirit of peace. He gave it to David after he defeated Goliath; He gave it to Moses after he saw the bush was burning yet was not consumed by the fire; and He gave it to St Paul, after he saw the cross.
It is so essential to have some "down time" to be alone and just sit silently. Noisy people don't hear from God. Noise can distract us from the voice of the Spirit, but God often speaks in the silence. One may think that hearing God's voice is beyond us. But God speak to Elijah in a still small voice, rather than in the wind, earthquake, and fire?
"Go out and stand before me on top of the mountain," the Lord said to him. Then the Lord passed by and sent a furious wind that split the hills and shattered the rocks - but the Lord was not in the wind. The wind stopped blowing, and then there was an earthquake - but the Lord was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake there was a fire - but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the soft whisper of a voice.
 When Elijah heard it, he covered his face with his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. A voice said to him, “Elijah, what are you doing here?” (1 Kings 19:11-13).
It is to be remembered that Our God is designated in the Old Testament as Jehovah Shalom - the LORD our Peace.
