    Lesson #1: The Whisper Challenge

    • Big Idea: Many people believe that God’s voice is booming down from Heaven like a mighty wind, but often God speaks to us in a whisper.
    • Key Passage: 1 Kings 19:9-18  Elijah’s encounter with God. Elijah is being hunted for being devoted to God. The word of the Lord comes to him and he commands him to go to the mountain to wait for God. Although he thinks his voice and presence will be like an earthquake or fire, it is just a whisper.
