Advent is a time in which we look toward the advent of Jesus Christ. We look back toward His 1st advent with celebration and rejoicing, and we look toward His 2nd advent with anticipation. As we wait for His 2nd advent we want to wait well understanding that God has purpose in our waiting. Part of that purpose is to speak to us in ways that heal our sinful brokenness and renews our resolve for carrying out His purposes for us on this earth. Elijah’s experience with God at Mount Horeb provides us with a vivid account of God speaking in the midst of waiting.
