About one Solitary Female by Pastor Ed Young
He said, “Ed, they can take my car. They can take my house. They can take my country club membership, but they can’t eat me.” I have never forgotten that. They can’t eat me. The Bible says in I Kings 19:3, “Elijah was afraid and ran for his life.” He should have considered the source. We are talking about one solitary female. Jezebel wouldn’t have had him killed. Why? If you read the account in the Bible in I Kings, there were a number of faithful people, over 7,000. If she had taken him out, she would have lost the throne. Any time someone begins to knife you or influence you or try to intimidate you, always consider the source.
Jezebel, sadly, was a woman with great potential but a woman who was damaged. Damaged people, damage people. Did you get that? Damaged people, damage people. When someone is after you, trying to damage you, just step back and look at his or her life. Look behind the veneer, the exterior, and more often than not you will see that you are dealing with a damaged person. They are not necessarily after you; they are feeling badly themselves. They have poor self-esteem. They feel damaged and they want to damage as many people as possible.
Fellowship Church Grapevine – Elijah was afraid and he ran for his life. You don’t see Elijah stopping and dropping to his knees and asking God for a Gatorade. If he had stopped his run and hit his knees and asked God to show him His perspective, what His will was, the tide would have turned. God would have shown him, but he didn’t stop. When we loose perspective, we begin to see small, insignificant things as dangerous and we begin to get scared. He lost his perspective.© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved.
