God was speaking to Elijah in a still small voice...where does this come from _____________?
__:__And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
*Have you ever heard the saying, “God moves in mysterious ways”? Well, at mount Horeb where Elijah was at when this incident occurred, God displayed his power in a great wind, earthquake, and fire. The Bible says that the Lord was not in any of these; but the Lord rather chose to speak to Elijah in a still small voice. Sometimes God moves in ways that we don't really think of and many of God's plans are long range plans. The work of a ministry started by one person may never show any real progress on the surface during that person's life span. That ministry might be passed through several hands or generations before any fruit is seen coming from that ministry. However, it does not necessarily mean that God is not working in that ministry using the people in it to accomplish His purpose. We need to learn the same kind of a lesson that Elijah learned: God also uses little things to accomplish His purposes and God often moves in a quite way.

Answer: 2 Timothy 2:19
This is something that Paul wrote in Timothy, but where? ___________________
__:__Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
*Aren't you glad that the Word of God proclaims, that the foundation that God puts down cannot be destroyed? Here is another verse that comes from (1 Cor. 3:11) “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”. Everything in this life changes, and I am sure already this year people that might be reading this have seen some things happen that they never thought would happen in this country. In this constantly changing world that we live in the only thing that matters is the foundation. Just like skyscrapers, bridges, and houses rely on their foundations; we need to remember to rely on our foundation, which is Christ Jesus.
