Elijah thought he was the only faithful person left in Israel, but he was wrong (1 Kings 19:18). Matthew Henry writes that “in times of the greatest degeneracy and apostasy God has always had, and will have, a remnant faithful to him, some that keep their integrity and do not go down the stream.” God always has a faithful people, so we should look for Christians with whom we can fellowship and co-labor.
The seemingly ordinary decision to take our child to Sunday school or help him memorize Bible verses might be used by God to equip that child to be a mighty warrior in the Lord’s army. Our choice to give money to a local missionary apart from any visible revelation from God may be what purchases the Bible that leads to a great revival in a foreign land. The Lord is with us in the silent, “unremarkable” moments of our lives to do extraordinary things.
