Reflecting With God 10/17/2022

Thinking, praying, reading, studying the Bible – when we do these things, we are reflecting on the Word of God. To reflect is to contemplate and/or consider, and God wants us to deeply reflect on His Word so that we can better understand Him.

Monday Reflecting

He arose and ran for his life. – 1 Kings 19:3.
“Anoint . . . Elisha . . . as prophet in your place.” – 1 Kings 19:15-16.

What might have been! If only Elijah had held his ground he might have saved his country, and there would have been no necessity for the captivity and dispersion of his people. The seven thousand secret disciples would have dared to come forth from their hiding-places and avow themselves, and would have constituted a nucleus of loyal hearts by whom Baal had been replaced by Jehovah. . . . Elijah’s influence in Israel never recovered from that one false step. He missed a chance which never came again. And though God in His mercy treated him lovingly and royally as a child, He never again reinstated him as a servant in just the same position which he so thoughtlessly flung away. It is a solemn thought for us all. As children, we may be forgiven; as servants, we may never be reinstated or trusted quite as we were once. . . . As children, God will never cast us away; but as His servants He may, employing us only in some humble ministry, or to anoint our successors. . . . Others shall finish our uncompleted task.
