40

Monday August 10th, 1 Kings 19:  7 The angel of God came back, shook him awake again, and said, "Get up and eat some more—you've got a long journey ahead of you." 8-9 He got up, ate and drank his fill, and set out. Nourished by that meal, he walked forty days and nights, all the way to the mountain of God, to Horeb. When he got there, he crawled into a cave and went to sleep.  Then the word of God came to him: "So Elijah, what are you doing here?" First thought is that must have been some meal.  After being exhausted, God feeds him and he is good for a 40 day walk.  Reminds me of Jesus’ baptismal blessing being preparation for his 40 days in the desert, or Israel’s 40 years of wandering.  A time of preparing, of getting ready for what lies ahead.  So, what are you doing here?  God has fed you, nourished you, and blessed you beyond belief, now, what are you doing here?  You have been prepared, but for what?  What was, or is, the outcome of your time of testing?  Or did you just take a side road into personal prosperity? You have been blessed, so now in the kingdom of God here on earth how are you to be a blessing?  What a Joy it must be for God when we sometimes get it and respond in love to the world God has created.  Why not try it today?
