Reflection 313

Look
Go, look again” (1 Kings 18:43)
Ever imagine yourself living in the Old Testament? Perhaps playing the part of one cast in our readings? There had been a drought…some three years and the famine was severe. Then God spoke to Elijah: “Go present yourself to Ahab and I will send rain…” (1 Kings 18:2). Elijah went to the mountain and sent his servant to the sea. “...there is nothing there.” Seven times “...go back.” Then, “...a cloud…is rising from the sea” (1 Kings 43-44).  Could we be this diligent with God in our daily lives? Doubtful. We keep looking…keep praying and after a few tries, we give up. Perhaps go back, look for some sign of progress. Elijah’s servant went seven times to the sea. Why seven? Seven in biblical connotation communicates a sense of completeness, not one of numerical comparison. So, continue looking…praying because God answers…in His own time…just be open to His message.
