This verse comes to us from Bro. Joe S.

1st.Kings 19:11-13 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord . And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord ; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake: [12] And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice. [13] And it was so , when Elijah heard it , that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?

 

In 1st. Kings 18 the Prophet Elijah had experience a great victory. Here in chapter 19 we see this powerful Prophet walking in total defeat. 

He has pretty much handed in his resignation, he was just done with everything. 

So many times as Christians we too experience the highs of victory and the lows of defeat. 

To totally grasp the significance of this portion of the chapter we must see the way God would lift Elijah out of this Vally one step at a time. 

God would nourish him.1st.Kings 19:5-6 And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. [6] And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again.

God was aware of where Elijah was. At our lowest point we must by faith, trust God DURING our storms. 

This verse will teach us that God does not always move how and when we think He should. 

It would be in the still, small voice that Elijah would receive his next assignment. 

Church, let us learn to celebrate the small victories. If the only thing that brings us joy is the big things, we will spend a lot of time sitting in a cave of defeat. 

Come on Church, remember all The Lord has done for us. God is good all the time!
