BASIC SCRIPTURES: 1 KINGS 19: 9-18; JAMES 4:7
1 KINGS 19: 9-18 KJV
9 And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?
10 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the Lord God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15 And the Lord said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

Ahithophel was nearly compared to God when he gave counsel. Ahithophel was from the land of GILEAD where there was balm for healing. But the balm of Gilead COULD NOT HEAL HIM. Yes! He felt that because he was so wise, the country could not do without him. Absalom thought that because he was the most handsome, biological son of David and the logical heir to the throne, HE was indispensable! Don’t forget that they both committed suicide” and LIFE CONTINUED WITHOUT THEM! One day, Elijah said to God that he was the only person singing or working in the kingdom for God or church (you know where you fall into) and God said to him (Paraphrased): “SHUT UP! Don’t let pride rob you of your upcoming chariots of fire. I have reserved 7000 people who can do the job better than you after your departure. That fact that I chose you does not mean that you are indispensable!” Wow! Indeed, airs of importance are the credentials of impotence! ODM October 30 2020
Pray now: 1. “O Lord, don’t let me ever think that without me, the church where I and my family worship now will come to a standstill.
2. I surrender all to You and die of self.
3. Take me back to the cross and remold me by fire.
4. Shake away and take away every smell of PRIDE from me in Jesus’ name.
I remember Soren Kierkegaard: “The proud person always wants to do the right thing, the great thing. But because he wants to do it in his own strength, he is fighting not with man, but with God.” Yea! Very true! Listen: If you leave that department in your church or even the church, you will be the one to suffer it (except the LORD led you to). Don’t forget that when Satan, the highest Archangel left heaven, he wasn’t missed till today. God’s work is bigger than you billion times. Yes, He can replace you with any of the over 7 billion souls on earth today! Stop feeling proud. Let your motives be right in all you do! You are not too important. God by His grace decided to use you or keep you alive. So don’t let pride cause you to move from the palace to the forest like His Excellency, King Nebuchadnezzar. He became His Excellency to animals and wild beasts! Don’t be the next Nebuchadnezzar, Absalom or Ahithophel. ODM October 30 2020
