Get out of the Cave!

Divider
There he came to a cave and lodged in it.

1 Kings 19:9


After the tremendous miracle of fire falling from heaven by the prayer of Elijah, he was on the run from the fury and threats of Jezebel. Elijah seemed to quickly forget the power and majesty of the Lord. He went into a cave to hide and God found him.

Many of us are also in caves—not physical, but spiritual, emotional, and psychological caves of fear, doubt, and worry. As a result, our faith is paralyzed and we find ourselves unable to cope with our problems. As believers in Christ Jesus, we need to come out of our caves and step into the Lord’s presence.

Our caves don’t offer us protection nor solutions for our situations. Our caves keep us trapped into the deception that sin and Satan are more powerful than God. Yet, we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus and greater is He who is within us than he that is in the world. (Romans 8:37, 1 John 4:4)

Elijah stepped out of the cave when God questioned him with “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:9) God is asking the same question of us…what are we doing in our caves? He has given us the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome fear and engage us in courageous works. The Lord has provided everything we need to let go of our doubts and step out in faith. He has given us the gift of prayer to lay down our worries and trust in His peace that passes all understanding.

It’s time for us to step out of our caves and into the presence of God. When we come to Him, He will fill our hearts with the assurance of His calling and purpose on our lives.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to step out of this cave and into Your peaceful presence. Strengthen my faith to follow You with all of my heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
