The Champion in Elijah (1/3).


Elijah had his ups and downs, just like we all do. What made him stand out is at the end of the story; he lived out of his higher nature, rather than his lower nature. He did not allow the temporal interruption of doubt to have full sway in his heart. He doubted, but never forgot his source. He was moved but never forgot where his sustenance comes from. So, rather than all that which befell him take him away from God, he ran to God. He ran to his source.

Aristotle teaches, "it is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light." Why? The aim of the darkness is to immobilize. It is terror, and as terror does, wants us to think it is all there is. We must not buy into its merchandise. No matter the circumstance of life we find ourselves in, there is always something we can do. We can go to our source, and trust Him for the next step. We can stay faithful in the last word we heard from Him.

Keep trusting. Keep holding on to faith. Keep pressing. It's working. The light is dawning in your direction. Never give up. You are an overcomer.
