Elijah We Know Was Human
By A.Abeku Haywood-Dadzie
Key verse…… Elijah we know was a human being with a nature such as we have [with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours …..(James 5v17)
Post event analyses are always easy to make, this because the conditions under which they are made are total different from the pressures experienced during the real event.
Most of us read and engage in the analysis of biblical accounts from post event perspective. Such analysis sometimes leads to conclusions.
You will be making a big mistake if you ever read the bible from such perspective. Such assumptions will lead you to think that Elijah was remarkably fearless, Esther was extraordinarily courageous; Abraham was extremely brave; and Daniel and the Three Hebrews boys were exceedingly daring.
James 5 verse 17 makes us aware that Elijah and other men of God found in the biblical hall of fame were human with a nature such as we have, they faced the fears and the challenges we are facing now, however they decided to trust in God and these things happened, to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction,
Do you stagger in the valley of despair when faced with life challenges? Remember we have a high priest Who is able to understand and sympathize and have a shared feeling with our weaknesses and infirmities.
Let us then fearlessly and confidently and boldly draw near to His throne room of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in good time for every need.(Hebrews 4v14-16)
