Elijah knocks me over with his absolute faith in God. The God of Israel did not change, the people did. God was still the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and he is still the same God today. He still awaits the return of his people.
One more thing: God did not change his mind and send Jesus. God is steadfast and the same, forever and ever. Jesus is the fulfillment of all that went before. The only thing that changes is our faith and belief. Doubt overtakes us and we look to other god's for what we need. What are the god's that creep into your family life?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, you are the one true God! Thank you for your steadfast love for me and for your son Jesus. Help me to keep my eyes focused on you and forsake all other gods! In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Ephrem, pray for me.
