From Kings to the KING
"Relax: God is at Work"
April 8, 2018. Today we resume our series in 1 Kings as Pastor Brandon Cash teaches a message from 1 Kings 19.
Elijah has just experienced a tremendous victory on Mt. Carmel: God has triumphed, Baal has lost, and the people of Israel have returned to serve Yahweh, the one true God.
But then King Ahab's queen, Jezebel, threatens to kill Elijah.
Chapter 19 tells the story of Elijah fleeing for his life, deeply discouraged - even to the point of asking God to take his life.
There will be times when we too feel like what we do for the Lord accomplishes absolutely nothing. When those days come, remember the covenant promises of God. Remember that we are part of God's unfolding Kingdom plan and continue in faithfulness, knowing that His word will come to pass.
