The Prophet Elijah. Reggie Thayil

1 Kings 16:29-19:21 - Passage Lookup - New American Standard Bible -

Based on Hebrews 11:32-34
Where is Elijah in this passage? Consider...

(18:17-19) Who is the troubler?
There are two camps/ideas about the root of (I)'s problems
(21) Faltering b/w the gods... there's a lot of ignorance.
Causes Elijah to feel all alone
(40) Elijah sees major victory

Everything turns by Chapter 19
(4) (E) prays for death --> major low point
He gets comfort from G
(10) He feels loneliness / aloneness
Even though G is with him.
(E) desperately needs G's compassion

We want to be like Daniel, with great faith and devotion, but we are more often like Elijah: weak, made strong.
