The original Church had been charged with reaching the entire world with the Gospel, but in the beginning, they just stayed in Jerusalem. Then persecution came and they had a paradigm shift. They scattered, but then accomplished what God intended them to. I think the church is facing this once again as this virus has forced us out of our four walls, completely rethinking what church looks like and how we reach people. Instead of being focused on what's going on inside the church, our paradigm has shifted, and we are looking outwardly as we should.
Truth is not a personal choice, it has nothing to do with opinion. In this selection of verses we see a warning against false prophets. Additionally we see several examples of Gods mercy and rescue towards the righteous, and his punishment towards those who choose not to follow him.
In our spiritual walk we will always experience hills and valleys. Today as we walk through verses in 1 Kings we will be taking a look at the hills and valleys faced by Elijah. We will see through the scripture how even through Elijah's worst times the Lord always provides.
