Commentary from Pastor Michael White:

And the Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire. You heard the sound of the words, but saw no form; you only heard a voice. – Deut 4:12

Sight is probably your most dominant sense. You’ve probably heard it said that seeing is believing. Yet Scripture says when it comes to receiving from God, we should expect to hear. Elijah heard from God in the form of a, “still small voice” (1 Kings 19:12). Paul told the early church at Rome that, “…faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Rom 10:17).

God spoke to the people of Israel out of the midst of the fire. When things got hot and out of control, God spoke. His people didn’t always know what to expect, and they didn’t know what form God’s deliverance would take. But they heard His voice.

God is working all around you, whether your realize it or not. No matter what you are going through, He will make His voice known. Make time to listen, and press in.

When you are in distress, and…when you turn to the Lord your God and obey His voice (for the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them. – Deut 4:30-31

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your faithfulness! I know that no matter what I am going through, You are working. I know that no matter where I am, You are willing to speak to me. Help me to block out all distractions, and make time to listen!
