Confident and Secure

Today's reading: 1 Kings 18:1-19

After several years of living in hiding, God sends Elijah back to Samaria to confront king Ahab and deal with the tremendous evil that is taking place under his rule. Now Ahab detests Elijah and has been searching for him with ill intent because of the severe drought (and the resulting hardship) Elijah, following God’s instruction, had declared on the land three years prior. So as Elijah receives these new instructions from God he clearly knows that Samaria is a hostile and threatening environment for him. Yet, we don’t see any hesitation, questioning, doubt or fear from Elijah about returning and confronting Ahab. Rather, a trusting Elijah immediately acts on God’s instruction. And when he arrives in Samaria, nothing changes. His demeanor is one of confidence which we see displayed in his interactions with Obadiah and Ahab.

What stood out to you the most about Elijah from this passage? What does Elijah show us about following and trusting God when He puts a difficult task or situation before us, or asks us to do something that is outside of our comfort zone? Tami
