Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

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.

  1. This is a great thought. (All of them are, but this one stands out and is “rememberable.”)
