The Daily Breath of God
Monday, December 28 2015
So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is god, follow him.” But the people said nothing. 1 Kings 18:20, 21
In the days of Elijah, believing in God was not the people’s problem. But what they believed about God did not impact their decisions, their morals or their lives. Their priorities in life were about what would please them most. So, even though they believed in God their belief was not founded in love for him and therefore they could not follow him. If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is god, follow him. But the people said nothing. The power of God’s grace is that it can give belief that makes a new life. In this place true life is found in our relationship with the Lord which will impact those around us. Living grace has no wavering between two opinions. Today let his grace express life in and through you. Grace can make you new in your emotions and thoughts in such a way that the pleasant look of encouragement will become who you are. If the LORD is God, follow him, this is meant to be much more than thoughts, it is the refreshment of a new life in Him. Enjoy!
