OBEDIENCE – you’re not the only one obeying God


1 Kings 19:
 10 Elijah replied, “I have zealously served the Lord God Almighty. But the people of Israel have broken their covenant with you, torn down your altars, and killed every one of your prophets. I am the only one left, and now they are trying to kill me, too.” (New Living Translation)
Elijah thought he was the only one left who was still true to God. 
After experienceing great victory at Mount Carmel, he had to run for his life.  His resulting loneliness and discouragement made him feel sorry for himself. 
Elijah had seen both king’s court and the priesthood become corrupt.  In his discouragemnet, he forgot that others had remained faithful in the midst of the nations wickedness.   
When you are tempted to to feel you are the only one remaining faithful to a task, don’t stop to feel sorry for yourself – self-pity will dilute the good you are doing. 
Be assured, that even if you don’t know who they are, others are faithfully obeying God and carrying out their duties.

Thank you. Be blessed!
