Not Fooled and Not Bowed

Posted on

“Yet I reserve seven thousand in Israel—all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him.”
1 Kings 19:17-19

By the anointing and enablement of the Most High God (God of Israel), Elijah had just accomplished a great feat for the kingdom of God. Four hundred and fifty prophets of baal had been put to an open shame. When it came time for the idol that the false prophets worshipped to come through for them, he was a no-show. Maybe he was tending to his needs in the lavatory. Makes me want to shout alleluia for serving a God Who neither slumbers nor sleeps and Who is always present. No sooner had the prophet of God Elijah dismissed his victory party, than Jezebel the queen threatened his very life. Elijah became distraught, fearful and ran for his life.

When Elijah got to the wilderness, he cried out to the Lord that he had enough and wanted to die. The man of God was tired discouraged and felt alone. With all those myriads of churning emotions, the prophet subsequently fell asleep. An angel of God woke him up twice, fed and strengthened him for the journey ahead. As God assured him that He still had faithful people who had not bowed to falsehood and idols, and who knew about Jezebel, her evil tactics and threats.

Thank God, we know how the story ends and what becomes of Jezebel and her household. Child of God are you weary, tired and feeling all alone in the ‘righteousness movement’? Know for sure that the Lord our God, He is God and there is none besides Him. And with Him are thousands of other faithful saints and warriors, who have not bowed. You can only be VICTORIOUS!!!
