Waiting
Scripture: 1st Kings 19:11-13

I recently joined my husband on his deer hunting endeavors; I being armed with a camera, him with a crossbow. I quickly learned the biggest challenge in hunting was simply sitting there without moving or talking for fairly long periods of time. This was especially difficult for me. I was used to fishing, where if nothing struck the bait within the first few minutes it hits the water, something needed a snap adjustment. Here in the deer stand, we were left waiting, hoping that an animal might grace us with its presence, with the understanding that it may not show up at all.

Every minute brought new sounds, heightening our senses and anticipation. We quietly waited and listened. A rustle in the bushes. No deer. A limb breaking in the distance. No deer. Leaves dancing in the trees. Still no deer. Finally, right at dusk, the beautiful majestic animal suddenly appeared as if quietly placed there by an unseen force. We watched as it sniffed the ground for a brief moment and quickly dash back into the woods.

Elijah also endured a period of waiting on a mountain cleft, eager to see God reveal himself to one of his servants. There was a powerful wind, but God was not there. Then came a earthquake. Still, God was not there. A fire raged, but God was not in the fire. Confused and frightened, Elijah stood by while the gentle whisper of God Almighty came to his presence, bringing reassurance and peace.

We too may endure a season of waiting, expecting God to show up in a mighty way, quickly resolving any conflict or trial. In searching for the dramatic, we may miss the small ways God graces our presence throughout our daily activities. “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
