Title: The suffering of the prophets

Bible verse: 1 Kings 19: 14

And he said, “I have been very zealous for the Lord God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life.”

Message: God does not always elect the strong, but He strengthens those whom He elects.

  • trust that God will lead His plan of redemption to completion, no matter what the circumstances.
