A New Revelation Of God PART I
There are times when, to lead us on into new authority and blessings, God must liberate us from the container of our previous experiences. The Lord was passing by, but He was not in the wind, the earthquake, or the fire, all of which were familiar symbols to Elijah. The Lord who caused these mighty manifestations was not in them. Elijah knew that the still small voice was God's. He realized that God doesn't reveal Himself only in powerful, miraculous ways. To look for God in only something big (valleys, churches, and conferences, highly visible leaders) maybe to miss Him, because He is often found gently whispering in the quietness of a humble heart. Are you listening for God? Step back from the noise and activity of your busy life and listen humbly and quietly for His guidance. It may come when you least expect it. For Elijah, mighty manifestations had been signs of God's approval. But something new was at hand that required a fresh submission to the living God. A double portion of power was coming! The distinguishing characteristic of this new anointing would not only be seen in supernatural manifestations but in greater wisdom and compassion.
