We walk by faith and not by sight…

In much the same way, we worship actively and not hyperactively. As the life of Elijah shows us, the true and living God is not found in the screams and gyrations of pagan priests summoning their demonic mentors (I Kings 18:21 ff), but in the still, small whisper of His own freely disclosed presence (I Kings 19:1-14). Where sounds fails us, faith prevails in the prayers. Where sight fails us, grace abounds in the unseen light of faith.
