Into the Wild
Promise (Week Five)
November 22, 2020 • Chad Moore
Our lives are important but temporary. God did amazing things in and through Elijah, and then he died. In our day, everyone wants to be a “rock star." Instagram, Tik Tok, and the like are fueling this. God loves you, He cares for you, but it’s not all about you. It’s about Him. There is no success without succession and God has Elijah lead and prepare the next generation.
Prayer (Week Four)
November 15, 2020 • Chad Moore
Elijah is in a cave hiding and God speaks to him. God makes a big deal of letting Elijah know that he is not in the big things that Elijah was expecting, but in the small unexpected things. Why does God whisper instead of shout? Because he is close to us. God is in all things; He is closer than we think.
Depression (Week Three)
November 8, 2020 • Chad Moore
After the big win on Mount Carmel Elijah becomes afraid and runs from the wrath of the evil Queen Jezebel. This is surprising considering all that God has done through the Prophet. In Elijah’s mind, he is running for his life, but the reality is he is running from his life, the life that God called him to. You never want fear to make your decisions. Sometimes what we think we’re protecting is actually preventing us from all that God has for us.
Power (Week Two)
November 1, 2020 • Robert Watson
In this passage, Elijah has the showdown with the prophets of Baal. There is literally a faceoff between the Lord God and the little gods. We all have little gods in our lives. Things we trust and put our hope in. The little gods promise what only the Lord God can deliver.
Preparation (Week One)
October 25, 2020 • Chad Moore
God shapes Elijah through pain to prepare him for the days ahead. He is taught total dependence on God, which prepares him for unconditional obedience. In that obedience, God does miracles in and through Elijah and he becomes known as the “Prophet of God."
