I read I Kings 19 several years ago and have the scripture opened in front of me as I type this post. I am reminded that God is not found in the earthquake, fire, or wind. Elijah found God in a still small voice. He reminded Elijah that he had seven thousand in Israel that had not bowed to Baal. Elijah was running for his life because he had defeated the prophets of Baal and Jezebel threatened his life. God instructed him to name Hazael king of Syria, Jehu king of Israel, and Elisha anointed to take Elijah's place as prophet. These men were to eliminate the prophets of Baal from the land. It is important that we learn to hear God's voice when seeking direction for our lives and to steal away for solitude. When we steal away and listen to God's voice, we will have clear answers for the problems that bother us as SGL men. Solitude can help us chart a path to physical health that does not involve stereotypical notions of what a healthy gay man looks like. One way to achieve this solitude is walks around your community and noticing the hand of God as we look at his creation. These walks will clear our minds and enable us to do the tasks we need to do to live in this world. Solitude also helps us remember the things that God has done for us in the past. Hebrews 13:8 states that:

"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever"

(Hebrews 13:8, English Standard Version)

We need to be reminded of that one fact and Elijah needed to be reminded that God would change the order of leadership in the two kingdoms and that Baal worship would be eliminated forever in the land. Try setting aside some time for quiet reflection this week and think about the things God has done for you in the past.
