Seek The Silence

11 The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper.

1 Kings 19:11-12

In our ceaseless pursuit to know and be known by God, the story of Elijah in 1 Kings 19:11-12 illuminates a profound truth for every Godseeker: often, God’s voice is not in the clamor but in the whisper. Amidst life’s tumult—represented by the wind, earthquake, and fire—God chose to reveal Himself to Elijah through a gentle whisper. This pivotal moment not only defines the essence of seeking God but also underscores the importance of silence and solitude on this sacred journey.

Learn to embrace the Quiet. For Godseekers, the call to quietness is a divine invitation to step away from the world’s noise and into a space where God’s voice can be heard most clearly. In these moments of stillness, we, like Elijah, can encounter God in profound and unexpected ways. Creating sacred spaces of solitude becomes not just an act of withdrawal but an intentional step towards more profound communion with the Divine.

Begin cultivating a Listening Heart. The discipline of listening is central to the Godseeker’s journey. In the solitude, away from distractions, our hearts become attuned to the nuances of God’s whisper. This active listening shapes us, guiding our steps and molding our desires to align more closely with God’s will. In the quiet dialogue with the Divine, it’s here that our path as Godseekers becomes more defined, directed not by the world’s demands but by the gentle nudging of God’s Spirit.

Have a Sacred Dialogue. For Godseekers, silence and solitude are not passive states but vibrant arenas of engagement with God. Through whispered prayers or the silent offering of our hearts, we enter into a deep, personal exchange with our Creator. Though often wordless, this dialogue is rich with meaning, fostering an intimate and transformative relationship. In the stillness, we find answers and a deeper sense of belonging and purpose in God’s presence.

The Transformative Power of Stillness. The practice of seeking God in silence and solitude has a transformative effect on the Godseeker. It brings an inner calm that steadies us amidst life’s storms, a clarity that illuminates our purpose, and a closeness to God that infuses our lives with meaning and joy. This pursuit of stillness is a powerful testament to our faith, demonstrating our belief that God is not only found in the grand and the glorious but also in the quiet, in the whisper.


Lord, as we seek You in the silence, open our hearts to hear Your whisper. In the solitude, draw us closer to Your heart, teaching us the beauty of Your quiet presence. May every Godseeker find in the stillness a profound encounter with You, coming to know Your voice, Your will, and Your love more deeply. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Personal Reflection for Godseekers

  1. As a Godseeker, how can you better incorporate silence and solitude into your daily pursuit of God? What practical steps can you take to ensure these moments are a priority?
  2. Reflect on a time when silence led you to a deeper understanding or connection with God. How did this experience influence your journey as a Godseeker?

Step of Faith for Godseekers

Commit to a daily practice of seeking God in silence and solitude. Start with a few minutes each day, gradually extending this time as you grow more comfortable in the stillness. Note how this practice deepens your relationship with God, enhances your sensitivity to His voice, and guides your path as a Godseeker.
