1 Kings 18:1-46 / Acts 11:1-30 / Psalm 135:1-21 / Proverbs 17:12-13
Standout verse: 1 Kings 18:21
“And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.”
God’s people had been living in a culture of such mixture and impurity that they had become confused about who they were and about who He was. Their silence and lack of definition was killing them, SO, God sent Elijah to deliver a wake up call.
The world’s ideas and lifestyles claim to bring happiness, but they are built on the sinking sand of half-truths and self-centered ideologies. Let’s not be fooled and influenced by these life-stealing ideas and principles. If we live our lives with one foot in the world and one foot in God’s truth, we’ll get ripped off from the GOOD STUFF our awesome Heavenly Father has made available to each one of us!
Just like back then, these are days of decision and definition. GOD WANTS US TO TRULY KNOW THAT HE ALONE IS GOD, THAT HIS WAYS ARE HIGHER AND LEAD TO FRUITFUL LIFE.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man but it’s end is the way of death.
Proverbs 14:15-16 ,“The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps. A wise man fears and departs from evil, but a fool rages and is self-confident”.
