Elijah's great victory over tho
prophets of Ilanl which resulted In
their extermination Ib followed by a
most notable prayer servlco on tho
top of Mount Cnrmcl (18:42-45). So
confident was tho prophet that at tho
arising of "a Httlo cloud." ho hastily
summoned tho feasting king nnd urges
his departuro to his home, "that tho
rain stop thee not." Tho Ood whom
Elijah had honored so signally that
day laid his hand upon tho prophet
(18:4C) bo thnt ho was able to outrun
tho king's horses to the entrance of
Jezrool. There ho Ib met by n mes
senger of tho wicked queen (19:2)
who had been the protector and pro
vider of tho slain prophets, (letting
his eyes off of Ood and Bcelng only a
vile and wicked woman Elijah not
only ran for his Hfo out of Ahab'B do
mnltiB but also "went a day's Journey
Into tho wilderness" to tho protecting
shade of a Juniper treo (V. 4).

It was her prophets Elijah had lc

fact that Elijah did not enter her

Is not overthrown, his efforts had boon
but trying to "dam Niagara with bul

tho bitter agony of "It is enough."
Tho prophet who alone had been ex
alted to tho heights was alone capable
to sounding such a depth of human
despair. Tho sources of his discour

God's first remedy was to feed his
fainting servant and then give him a
task to perform, viz., a Journey to
Mount Horob (Mount of God), for God
loved him Just as truly now as pre
viously at Carmcl. In this new
strength Elijah wont "forty days" (v.
8; I Pet. 2:2).
II. The Encouraging God, vv. 9-13.
God's second remedy waa to glvo
Elijah his word though this time It
suggested roproof. "What doest thou
hero?" Elijah Is out of place. In re
ply ho begins to rehearse his loyalty
to God, and how bad tho others wero

adds, "and they seek my life." "I
only," are tho wordB of tho selfish man
nnd when Elijah used them ho too
was a backslidden servant. It Is truo
that there was great apostasy In Israel
but tho prophet was far from being
tho only truo servant remaining. (Seo
,18:4; 20:13; 22:35, 41; 22:8). This
Is a favorito way tho Evil Ono has for
paralyzing our efforts. Thero is no
evidence but that tho 7,000 wero as
bravo, certainly at that moment moro
bo, than Elijah. God then continued
his treatment by giving tho prophet
a vision of himself and of his meth
ods for advancing his kingdom. A

Elijah threo definite tasks to perform.
Elijah still speaks of his faithfulness
as though tho success of The Causo
depended upon him. The man who
assumes that attitude In tho work of
God's kingdom will, llko Elijah, soon
bo set aside. Elijah's first task was
to avoid Israel and go to Damascus
and "anoint" set apart for special
servlco Hazael (v. 17), who was to
be tho Instrument of punishing Israel,
His next task was to find Johu, tho
commander In chief of Ahab's army,

work, also with that accomplished by
Jehu. (Seo II Kings 2:23, 24; Hob.

Elijah's third task was to appoint
his successor and surely no harder
task over comes to any of us than to
turn over our work to another.
