Protective Power of Truth

The experience of Elijah recorded in the nineteenth chapter of I Kings, is replete with inspiration to all seeking safety in these troublous times. Familiar as the story is to students of the Bible, an understanding of its spiritual import is needed today; and, if heeded, it will bring courage and calm amidst the strife of world conditions.

The prophet Elijah had served God faithfully, according to his understanding, but the enmity aroused against him so overwhelmed him with despair that he fled to the wilderness. There he was nourished and strengthened by an angel, and in that strength went "forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God," where he lodged in a cave, depressed by a sense of failure in the accomplishment of his mission. But the voice of the Lord came to him bidding him go forth and stand upon the mount. There he witnessed the raging wind, the earthquake, and the fire. But the Lord was not in the wind, the earthquake, or the fire; "and after the fire a still small voice," which he recognized as the voice of the Lord.
