Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire. But the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it he pulled his cloak over his face pastors email addresses and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah”. Elijah knew deep inside himself that the gentle whisper had come from God and now here was this voice at the mouth of the cave confirming it. God himself, the very creator, was asking Elijah what he was doing. It was not as if God did not know what Elijah was doing but the voice served to call attention to Elijah, to stop him in his tracks, and make him question exactly what he was expecting from God. Elijah didn’t get what he expected. He had expected great and powerful things to come from God but all he got was a whisper, a gentle voice from above. It was a whisper and a voice that transformed Elijah and it is the same whisper and voice that will transform you.

Since you have to make certain choices every day anyway, why not choose what really works? If a doctor told you to take a certain medicine every day and that if you did you would have victory in your health, would you consider it? Here’s a spiritual formula that works, which when applied will turn your life and ministry around. If you have a Christian business, are a pastor or run a Bible study, share information or sell a Christian product on the web you should create a list of subscribers. These are people who trust you and want to hear from you. Enlighten their lives by sending them frequent email messages and relevant information. Here are three ways to give them God’s word through email: In all instances as Men in Ministry, we need to realize that we are in leadership and as leaders we need to thoroughly support the Pastor of our local church. The Pastor has been placed in authority over us by God. All authority comes from God. In this article you will see various examples of common and not so common support situations.
