1 Kings 18
“𝙸𝚏 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝙻𝚘𝚛𝚍 𝚋𝚎 𝙶𝚘𝚍, 𝚏𝚘𝚕𝚕𝚘𝚠 𝚑𝚒𝚖.”
The Israelites may have felt they had good reasons to worship Baal despite the Lord’s command, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3).
Baal was known as the god of storms and rain, and after three years of drought, they desperately needed a storm. And Baal worship was socially accepted and endorsed by the king and queen.
As you read 1 Kings 18, consider any situations in your life that could be compared to the situation the Israelites were in.
Do you ever find yourself indecisive about following the Lord because the alternatives seem reasonable and compelling? (see 1 Kings 18:21).
In the events found in this chapter, what do you think the Lord was trying to teach the people about Himself and about Baal?
What experiences have taught you similar truths?
