And God was not in the whirlwind

Sometimes I feel as though I am in the middle of a storm, the “eye” of the storm. Everything around me is swirling a million miles a minute and all I can do is just watch it. Poor Job finally heard from God through a whirlwind after his sufferings. God didn’t explain why Job endured the things that he did, but he sure did make sure that Job understood that he was in charge by asking, “Where were you when I…..?” Psalms 77 says that at one time God did speak out of the whirlwind and earthquake. Yet later, when Elijah had a time in his life when he wanted to hear from God directly, God revealed himself in a whole new way. One of quietness and intimacy. “And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.”
