“the word of the LORD came to him, and He said to him, "What are you doing here, Elijah?””
1 Kings 19:9

In the Scripture there is a passage where Elijah is running in fear from the evil Queen Jezebel. He ends up hiding in a cave on Mount Horeb. Then God shows up and says, “What are you doing here?” What God is asking is this: “Elijah, what are you doing in a cave? Did I not send you to preach to my people Israel? Shouldn't you be in Israel leading my people in a great revival? I didn't call you to run to this cave and hide yourself away. So, Elijah, what are you doing here?”

Maybe today you are hiding in a cave, running from your problems, running from God, running from your destiny, running from your calling. God is asking you today; “What are you doing here?” God tells Elijah to get out of the cave. God says, “You may have given up on Me, but I have never given up on you!” This is a powerful message of grace.

When the Lord comes to Elijah, there are no sermons, no lectures, no threats, no reproaches and no rebukes. The Lord simply touches the prophet, meets his need and gently speaks to him. God extends the same grace to you and me! Regardless of where the paths of sin and suffering may have led you, you need never fear being abandoned or forsaken by Him.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for not giving up on me.
Amen
