Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood and the stones and the dust, and it licked up the water that was in the trench. Now when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, “The Lord, He is God! The Lord, He is God!” 1 Kings 18:38-39
The story of Elijah and the prophets of Baal is a story of biblical proportions. It’s a showdown between the Lord God and Baal – between Elijah and 450 prophets of Baal.
It seems Elijah stands alone against overwhelming odds.
However, this is not a contest between men but a contest between gods.
I like Elijah. As the Baal prophets were crying out, dancing, and jumping around, Elijah mocked them and said, “Cry aloud, for he is a god; either he is meditating, or he is busy, or he is on a journey, or perhaps he is sleeping and must be awakened.” 1 Kings 18:27
The false prophets began cutting themselves becoming a muddy mess of dust, sweat, and blood.
No answer! And there never will be!
Something that doesn’t exist can never answer.
God can and did and does!
Remember earlier when I said Elijah stands alone against overwhelming odds?
That’s only the way it appeared to everyone else.
You should know – If God is for us, who can be against us? Rom 8:31
Keep in mind that you never stand by yourself as a lone Christian. He is there and He can, did, and does answer prayer of biblical proportions.
