When faced with one of the toughest issues he had ever encountered, Elijah ran and hid. He’d just gotten through proving to the people their god wasn’t real but his was. You’d think he’d be celebrating but instead he ran as a result of a threat to his life. If God was with him before, why would he abandon him? He wouldn’t. The same applies to us, so if we’re running let it be to Him and not away from our problems.
There he came to a cave, where he spent the night. But the LORD said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” (1 Kings 19:9 NLT)
