“There he went into a cave and spent the night. Then the word of Adonai came to him; he said to him, What are you doing here, Eliyahu? He answered, I have been very zealous for Adonai the God of armies, because the people of Israel have abandoned your covenant, broken down your alters and killed your prophets with the sword, Now I’m the only one left, and they’re coming after me to kill me too.”
1 Kings 19:9-10 CJB
Often times we can feel all alone and like no one is on our side! We can also feel abandoned even by the LORD, but nothing can be farther from the truth!
“For the sake of His great reputation, Adonai will not abandon His people; because it has pleased Adonai to make you a people for Himself.”
1 Samuel 12:22 CJB
Two things to see here! First, we are not alone there are many people that are in the same boat as we are in! Second, the LORD is always with us!
“Still, I will spare seven thousand in Israel, every knee that hasn’t bent down before Ba’al and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
1 Kings 19:18 CJB
In other words Elijah felt alone, but the fact is seven thousand didn’t bow down and the same goes for us, we are not alone and the LORD has us covered! Today, let’s be bold for the LORD and not fear the pressure of the world!
May your day be blessed!
