Bible reading for today: 1 Kings 19:9–21
We hope you’ve been blessed by the past two days of seeing God’s sheer goodness in prophet Elijah’s story! If you’ve read the Bible readings, you’ll know that Elijah once fled (needlessly) from the wicked queen Jezebel to a cave on Mount Horeb (see 1 Kings 19:8–9). But press play to see how God was right there with Elijah, even though He didn’t lead him there. Today, if you’ve taken certain detours in life and are wondering if God’s still around, the answer is a resounding YES. Get ready to get a glimpse of the deep compassion of your God as you watch the video!
We trust that our series on Elijah has unveiled God’s great love for you on a whole new level. Know that He’s the God who draws even closer in your valley moments/seasons of discouragement, depression and burnout, and doesn’t stop looking out for you even when you go your own way in life.
Perhaps that’s what the well-loved psalmist David meant when he said, “If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.” (Psalm 139:9–10 NLT)
