Nope not me. I’m not raising my hand. As I think about the Sunday school lesson dealing with Elijah’s battle royale with prophets of Baal, I am just amazed. Not only was he outnumbered but he made the contest harder by insisting that the alter be dashed with water multiple times. Now anybody knows it’s difficult to get wet wood to burn.
But burn baby burn it did. Not only did the wood burn but all of the water was soaked up as well.
Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said , The LORD, he is the God; the LORD,he is the God. I Kings 18: 38-39 (KJV)
When we are faced with our very own show downs and it appears as if we are outnumbered and in the midst of impossible situations, it often looks like we are all alone. But the story of Elijah illustrates that me (you) and God are enough.
Personally, I have found that it’s during those time of intense battles where it’s just me and God that I come to know the Lord is indeed God in more ways that I had known before.
