Elijah: The Whiny Prophet / 1 Kings 19 – Julian Riddle

Julian Riddle / I Kings 19 / August 6, 2017  In this sermon pastor Riddle talks about the struggle of Elijah the prophet after he has won a mighty battle against the evil King and Queen – Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Victory becomes defeat as Elijah retreats, both physically and mentally, and ultimately arrives not at Mount Carmel, where he was supposed to be, but at another mountain.  There, in that lonely place, Elijah encounters the Lord, whose ways he only partly understands and accepts.  It is here that God reveals himself to Elijah and gently leads him back onto the path of faith from which he has strayed.
