But the Lord told Elijah, “I still have 7,000 followers who have not worshiped Baal.”
Elijah pleads with God, claiming he was the only one who had not bent a knee to Baal. God smacks his claim down telling him of the remnant of those who have been faithful. Life has its share of setbacks and unexpected turns, and many people give up because of those setbacks. But those who stay on course and remain faithful will experience God’s richer blessings. Be one of God’s remnants!
