[The Glory Unveiled]
Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. [ 1 Kings 19:18 KJV ]
Elijah reached a point in his life where he believed he was the sole survivor of his kind, thinking that all the other prophets had been killed. “And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away” (1 Kings 19:14). No matter the challenge you face, remember you’re not alone in it; many others share similar experiences. Don’t let complacency hinder you from fulfilling your tasks. Some could have succeeded if they had a sense of community; knowing others faced the same struggles might have prevented them from giving up. To avoid falling into that trap, the word of God assures us of the company of witnesses: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us” (Hebrews 12:1). God’s instruction is for us to run with perseverance the race marked for us as individuals. It emphasizes shedding hindrances, including the belief that we are alone. The powerful feeling and fear of being alone can deter us from giving our best. Armed with the knowledge that we are not alone, let’s give our best in everything.
