Today’s reading: 1 Kings 18:20-40

I never tire of reading through the confrontation between Elijah and the prophets of Baal. It’s one of my favorite stories in the Bible. As the day begins in this account, the numbers are lop-sided–450 prophets of Baal versus 1 prophet of the living God, Elijah. But with God on Elijah’s side, what appears to onlookers as a showdown, is really no contest at all. I love the bold way Elijah proclaims and calls on God, and then how God answers mightily, not just sending fire but an incredible, all consuming fire.

What encouragement did you draw from Elijah’s showdown example? What’s one thing that stood out to you about God from this passage? Tami
