During our spiritual walk, we will have to move past obstacles—which can even be ourselves—to be faithful to God’s calling for us. In today's Sunday episode, Pastor Greg Laurie speaks on Elijah, a man who struggled with fear, loneliness, anger, and doubt—just like us but overcame these burdens to bring light to a dark culture. Notes Elijah the prophet is one of the most memorable characters in all of scripture. Elijah was a man just like us. James 5: 17 Jesus has called us to be both salt and light in our culture today. “When a man stops believing in God, he doesn’t then believe in nothing; he believes in anything. ” —G. K. Chesterton People can become too comfortable with sin, and then sin bites. God brought in Elijah to be a brilliant and blazing light. Elijah means, “My God is Jehovah” or “The Lord is my God. ” Elijah stood continually in the presence of God. God is looking for men and women today who are willing to stand in the gap like Elijah. Ezekiel 22: 30 Elijah was a man of prayer. Elijah knew the scripture and acted upon it. Elijah faithfully delivered the message. We must preach the gospel to the people who are hurting our society. They are not the enemy; they are in the control of the enemy who is Satan! Takeaway truth. . . God gives second chances.
