Elijah 1: Wind, Earthquake, Fire – Artrage 6 digital painting by Revd Tom Studman
Elijah 2: Sheer Silence – Artrage 6 digital painting by Revd Tom Studman

After encountering the wind, earthquake and fire Elijah wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. In this second painting I imagined Elijah stretching out His arms. He was standing in wonder, praising God for the beauty of the silence in which he had sensed the Lord’s powerful presence. I pray we may all encounter the sheer silence of God in this season of pandemic. May you sense the purity of the peace God gives us.
