Fri 17th July   –    Read 1 Kings 17:21-24

V21-22:  And surely God reveals to him what he now does – perhaps with a new dawning faith in his own heart. Often it is as faith “ventures” that the Lord meets it with His answer – but we must never presume! Again sceptics suggest that the heat of Elijah’s body brought the lad round. This will not do for Bible believing Christians. Elijah asked for a miracle, the restoration of life which had gone, and it was granted. Surely we are to see this, and other such miracles in the OT and indeed the NT too, as anticipations of the greater and final resurrection to come. This boy would die again, but we have the sure promise of Jesus in John 11:25-26.

V23-24:  So, Elijah restores the boy to his mother – what joy it must have given her! But her deepest response is to realise and recognise that this is God’s work, and now she knows that all Elijah has said of Him is true. May God use our lives and witness to point others to Him.
