Today’s Reading:  1 Kings 17 – 18

“And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.” 1 Kings 17:1 (KJV)

The Nation was under the rule of a godless king, who was ruled by a demonic, and godless woman.  God would show Himself strong and reveal Himself; but who would be the man who would stand before this godlessness?

How would the man of God stand?  Upon what would he stand?  First of all he would confront the king.  Secondly he would stand upon the word of God; and take the message of God to this ruthless, evil ruler.

Christian there is no other thing for us to stand upon with a sure and strong foundation than the commandments, the statutes, the law, the judgments, the precepts, the testimonies, and the way of God.  When we begin to rob the power of the word of God, by putting it below technology, science, finance, homes or family; then we have a major problem.  Society weakens, culture worsens, and evil flourishes.

Stand of the word of God; begin by trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ who bled and died for your sins; and was raised again bodily from the grave.  He is returning to earth one day to put away sin forever.
