1 kings 18:22-39
ARE YOU AMONG THOSE WHO KNOW THEIR GOD❓
1 Kings 18:24
in 1816, Dr. G.S. Faber in his book titiled the Origin of Pagan idolatry shows the identity of Baal with the Hindu deity Jagan Nathan, who is represented by his followers as wrapped in profound meditation, sometimes sleeping and sometimes taking long journey. Elijah taunted the prophets of Baal when he likened their god to Jagan Nath.
Praise the Lord, the God we serve is not like Baal. He does not slumber nor sleep (PS. 121:3). He can never be lost in meditation. The Psalmist calls him, “The ever-present help in times of need” (Psalm 46:1). He revealed Himself to Abraham as the El-Shaddai, the Almighty (Gen. 17:1), the Promise Keeper (Gen. 21:1) and Jehovah Jireh (Gen. 22:14 KJV). As the mountains surround Jerusalem, that is how He surrounds His people. To John the beloved, He was revealed as He that holds the keys of David (Rev. 3:7); He whose name is True and Faithful (Rev. 19:11).
Are you facing any form of spiritual contest? Is your faith being challenged? One thing that will guarantee your success and testimony is the assurance of who God is. David saw Him as the God of his past victories and by that assurance he faced and defeated Goliath. Rest assured in whom your God is. It was this assurance that emboldened Elijah to challenge the prophets of Baal.
They that know their God will always be strong and do exploits.
Lord, may I always remember who You are to me.
