Trusting God in the Face of the Enemy

In 1 Kings 18:17-19, we have the prelude to a fantastic showdown:

When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him, “Is it you, you troubler of Israel?”   And he answered, “I have not troubled Israel, but you have, and your father’s house, because you have abandoned the commandments of the Lord and followed the Baals.   Now therefore send and gather all Israel to me at Mount Carmel, and the 450 prophets of Baal and the 400 prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

This sermon, the fifth in a series on the life of God’s prophet Elijah, borrows its emphasis from the contest between Elijah and the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel.   Like Elijah of old, we also must have courageous faith in the face of the Enemy.
