One minute you are up and the next you are hanging on for dear life. Obviously God didn't design or call us to live this way, so what is the solution for consistent courage? No one’s life reveals the secret and confesses the weakness better than Elijah. Elijah felt all alone and at first he proclaims it like it is some NOBLE virtue – but in the end the tidal wave of fear comes crashing down around him. How can such a courageous man end up running and whimpering hopelessly in a cave? And How does he become courageous? Come and see!
Sunday, Feb. 5, 2012, As I studied Eccl. 7-8 and noticed the long list of absurdities that are observed by the Master Teacher.

Does He not care? – Is He incapable? – there is a 3rd option – He is working through it all & He is not such a small God that He must be limited to only being sovereign as long as He hands out Sunshine and Rainbows to everyone. Come and see!
