Be the One
Break the Silence
1 Kings 19:19b
Synopsis: It happens to the best of us and all the rest of us. You know what I mean. It happens when events in life seem to shut us up in a solitary place filled with silence. Now silence is a good thing at times, but none of us like to be a prisoner to it. That kind of silence is often so dark that it can make us long for death. That’s where Elijah found himself (1 Kings 19). Following the great triumph over the priests of Baal on Mount Carmel Elijah found himself running for his life, pursued by Jezebel.
Challenge: Be the ONE to Break the Silence. As in Elijah’s case, God often sends “messengers” to feed and nurture those who are struggling. You can do that. If you are the Elijah listen, feed on the Word from the Lord and move on to where you need to be. Listen, as God spoke to Elijah, god will speak to you through the Word who became flesh, through the word of the biblical message, or even directly. Listen for the voice of the Lord and remember you are not alone.
