YOU ARE NOT ALONE
And behold, there came a voice to him and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” He said, “I have been very jealous for the LORD, the God of hosts. For the people of Israel have forsaken your covenant, thrown down your altars, and killed your prophets with the sword, and I, even I only, am left, and they seek my life, to take it away.” —I Kings 19:13-14
“Yet I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” —I Kings 19:18
Elijah felt he was alone in service to our Lord God Almighty, but our Lord said, “Yet I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the knees that have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.” Elijah was not alone. Our Lord always has His people even when we might not know it. Elijah was not the only one our Lord was working through.
Brother and sister, fellow follower of Jesus, let us on this Resurrection Sunday of 2023 take great comfort in knowing our Lord is working all over this planet through His people. He will accomplish His plan for His Church. The gospel will go out to the world and disciples will be made from all tribes, peoples and nations. This is His plan. He will bring it to pass.
So, even though it may seem lonely in this service to our Lord, you are not alone. Our Lord has plenty of His people serving all across this planet to carry out His plans and purposes. Let us rejoice that we are getting closer to finishing the mission He has given us. Let us be faithful in seeking to complete that mission which He seal on this resurrection Sunday 2000 years ago.
Oh Father, be pleased to finish the mission Jesus gave us even in this generation. Either way, the resurrection of my Lord Jesus seals the eternal life You have given me though Him. I am grateful to know that the best is yet to come and will last forever. Oh, may I be faithful until then to be about Your plans and purposes for me by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. So may it be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow4OfW4DP9s
