Have you noticed how unpredictable God is? Take for example the experiences of Moses and Elijah with God in the same place: Mount Sinai, also called Horeb.
Moses met God there in thunder, lightning, thick clouds, trumpet crescendo, smoke, fire, and earthquake (Exodus 19:16-20).
Elijah met God in the same place. Not in a violent windstorm, earthquake or fire, as he may have expected—but in a “the sound of a gentle whisper” (1 Kings 19:11-12, NLT).
What are some implications of this as I think how God relates to me?
I should not take another person’s experiences with God as the norm.
I can delight in a God who is creative and who cares enough about me to fashion his work in, for, and through me in an individual way.
