Elijah was on Mt. Sinai when he heard God's voice. (I Kings 19:12) It was not a voice loud or thunderous. It was a "still small voice". To look for God only in something big (rallies, churches, conferences, highly visible leaders) may be to miss Him because He is often found gently whispering in the quietness of a humble heart. The guys making a "joyful noise" may have missed out on something you had already discovered.
