I Kings 19:18 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.
Elijah was pretty sure that he was the only man of God left in Israel. How many times have I felt like that! Not to mean that I am much but I have felt alone. We like to pity ourselves. I do anyway. I want to think that things are bad and God isn’t blessing. I want to think that no one else is still standing like I am.
God lets Elijah know that He has 7,000 men who still love Him and serve Him right there. That had to shock Elijah. It probably reminded Elijah, like it would me, that he was not so important. God is the important One.
He is doing more than I would ever understand. He is all powerful. He will win in the end.
I still need to stand but I need to realize that God is at work. I am not the only one. I am not alone. God is at work!
