“When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.” John 11:4-6
Notice in the text that Jesus abode with Lazarus, whom he loved, for two days. We all know for a fact that Jesus could have healed Lazarus before he even walked through the door, but he decided to spend two days with him instead. God desires to spend some time with his children but how can he do so if we are way too busy to give him our time? It is time to be still and really get to know who God is. Be after the heart of God. It is when we pump the breaks on our daily grind and sit in peace that we get to really have intimate fellowship with our Father in heaven. Sometimes you have to take and make the time and make it a priority. God knows that we can be busy but God also wants us to know through it all we can be still. We can do all things through Jesus Christ, which is our strength. Through the winds, the earthquakes, and the fires of life, never forget to tune in to that still small that wants direct us into peace that surpasses all understanding.

“And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. 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. And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What does you here, Elijah?” 1 Kings 19:11-13
