Lonely vs. Alone

“And I alone am left…” (1 Kings 18:22; 19:10,14)

Three times Elijah is recorded as saying that he is the only one left.  More specifically, that he is alone.  Left alone by a society that had turned its back on God and therefore, turned its back on him.

One time he says it to the people, but the other two times he says it to God.  Yet, God will tell him that there were 7,000 other people left in his country that refused to bow down to the idols.  Elijah was 7,000 times wrong.

Your feelings about your situation are not the same as your reality.  Don’t mistake loneliness with being alone.  God’s people are never truly alone.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalms 23:4)
