Points to ponder about Elijah

  1. God doesn’t have to speak through storms, earthquakes .He can speak through, and often does, in a soft wisper or a light breeze. But he’s always there.
  2. Elijah’s faith in grand miracles was crushed, leading him to despair and dejection. Instead of the miracles convincing others who the real God is, the miracle brought on more intense hatred and persecution, opposite to what he thought was gonna happen.  He was in fear of his life from the most powerful evil queen and utterly close to death.  But God corrected him, had crows feed him bread, put him to sleep and then brought him back to life.
  3. Somewhat self-righteous, Elijah was despairing about being the only believer left.  God showed him how great He is by telling Elijah, there are 7000 more pure ones I’ve reserved for myself.  You are not the only one.
