At the end of Elijah’s triumphant demonstration of God’s Power and Presence, Elijah finds himself alone, abandoned and disillusioned. Why hadn’t the people responded. The Show of Power didn’t translate into the Sincerity of Purpose! God comes to Elijah in a still small voice, in the womb of a teenage peasant girl and in the unexpected conversations and circumstances of everyday life. For those who are looking and expecting God to be present, the world is filled with miracles. To those who wait on Sunday Morning Routines, God is distant and aloof.
God tells Elijah He has prepared a Remnant that is ready, willing and disciplines. So that’s where we find ourselves.
We are the Last Remnant.
