1 Kings 19: Earthquake, Fire and Whisper

The contrasts between 1 Kings 18 and 1 Kings 19 are sharp and startling. They are as different as night and day. In one Elijah is bold and courageous, victoriously facing all kinds of odds with the chapter concluding, ‘the hand of the Lord was on Elijah, and he girded up his loins and outran Ahab to Jezreel.’ Elijah experienced God’s supernatural strength to do the extraordinary.  But in Chapter 19, we find Elijah fearful, running scared, exhausted, depressed, and wanting to die.

What does this story tell us?  In tomorrow’s Explore, 11.15am at Ottery St Mary Parish Church, Roy and Pat help us find out.
