Good Monday morning!
1 Kings 19:11-13, “And he said, “Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire the sound of a low whisper. 13 And when Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his cloak and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”
Always looking for God in the big and the loud can cause you to miss the moves of His hand in the small and the quiet. I want to tell you that God is no more present in a great hall than He was at the cave entrance that day.
Fear can cause us to run from things that are out of our control. We go out under what limited power we possess trying to fix things that aren’t ours to fix. It is not God who leads us to be troubled. It is lack of trust that takes us there.
Jezebel had threatened to end his life. Elijah was afraid and he ran. God gave him strength then, He gave Elijah peace.
Once back to his right mind, the prophet continued to do the work to which God had called him.
Some things aren’t ours to fix. We have to trust that God is moving in the things that we can’t see.
Have a great week!
Let the Lord do His work!
