Where Is The Lord God Of Elijah? by Samuel Burgess

Where Is The Lord God Of Elijah?
Sammy Burgess
2 Kings 2:14

There are many things in this life that God has done that have absolutely amazed me. But there are 2 particular things that absolutely stun me as to what God has done in my life.

(1)- I Am Amazed That God Would CALL ME TO SALVATION! Often times I wonder why the Lord ever extended His Grace and Mercy to my life. I don't know of anything good that I did that would get His attention. I don't know of anything that I did to deserve Salvation.

But I have learned down through the years that God doesn't love us because we deserve it. God's love is extended to everyone and can be experienced by anyone who will give their heart and life to Him.

Jesus gave us a wonderful verse to cherish: {John 3:16}- "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son; that WHOSOEVER believeth in Me, should not perish, but have everlasting life."

No one will ever be able to explain God's Love; and no one will be able to understand why God extended His Grace to us. But I am glad that He did. You see, (1)-God gave us what we did not deserve {that's GRACE} - (2)-God also withheld those things that we do deserve {that's MERCY}. God's Grace and Mercy cannot be explained; but they can be experienced.

I am not only amazed that God would call me to Salvation; (2)- I Am Amazed That God Would CHOOSE ME FOR HIS SERVICE! It is one thing for God to save us, but it is an honor that He would want to use us in His Service.

God knew that there would be times when I would fail Him. God knew that there would be opportunities that I would not take. But He still chose to use me and He still wants to use me, and this amazes me.

Now, since God saved me and now wants to use me, I think that it is would be wise for me to do my very best for Him. I should TOTALLY COMMIT myself to God.

{There is a SONG that goes something like this:}
"I am firmly committed to the cause of Christ. Determined to ...
