“And the word of the Lord came to him: ‘What are you doing here, Elijah?’ “ I Kings 19:8
After a great victory of calling down fire and killing all the prophets of Baal, Elijah ran to the wilderness out of fear. He answered God he was the only prophet left. He felt completely alone.
Observing Elijah is important at this time of isolating due to the Coronavirus. Millions of people around the world are in the same situation and many are feeling lonely. But being alone doesn’t cause loneliness. It is thinking you are alone. God had to remind Elijah he was not the only one, and He, God, was with him.
Keep in mind we are not alone in this God is in isolation with you. Elijah was revived with this reminder. You can be too.
