And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, “The Lord, he is God; the Lord, he is God.” (1 Kings 18:39)
Today is a reflection day. Enjoy!
The story of Elijah is compelling. When he has his showdown with the prophets of Baal and Asherah up on Mount Carmel, the Lord shows Himself glorious as he sends fire from heaven that consumes Elijah’s sacrifice. The people are blown away,
We live in a time and place where people are chasing so many gods other than the one, true Living God. Their pursuit of the gods of self, sex, money, power, fame and comfort lead only to death. Sadly, these gods rule and reign in our world. Oh that God would get their attention like He did atop Carmel. May the Lord bring such fire in our lives that the people around us see our lives and cry out “The Lord, He is God!”
in Him, Mike
