Pastor Steven King’uyu taught us about Discerning The Voice Of God. Elijah, whose name means ‘my God is Yahweh’ was a prophet of God in the old testament. We are all familiar with the story of Elijah and Jezebel and how Jezebel wanted all the prophets of God dead. When Elijah, in fright, ran to the wilderness, God asked him what he was doing there. Today our focus is on what we are doing here. This doesn’t necessarily mean a place but it can mean a situation we are facing. What is our purpose and reason for being where we are today. Is God the reason? The number 40 symbolizes the period of testing and trial. Elijah walked in the wilderness for 40 days and nights towards the mountain of God, where he was able to discern God’s voice. He was able to pick out the voice from every event that happened on the mountain,which was a still small voice. The book of John 10 talks about sheep knowing their Shepherd’s voice and following him. We cannot discern God’s voice until we decide to choose to listen and focus on His voice.
