I Kings 18 ends with a great victory for God (New International Version, 2011, I Kings
18:25-45). Elijah defeats the prophets of Baal and the rains return after a long drought. One
would think that King Ahab and the nation returns to serving God after seeing the power of God
and His mercy. However, things don’t turn out as Elijah hopes. King Ahab and Queen Jezebel
continue their wicked ways. Then at the beginning of I Kings 19, we find Elijah struggling with
depression and despair as well as running from Jezebel because she seeks to kill him (New
International Version, 2011, I Kings 19:1-3). The battle with evil never ends and Elijah comes to
realize that we will always have struggles. It is during these struggles that God humbles us so
that we can learn to depend on Him (Merida, 2015). Elijah gives up and asks the Lord to take his
life, then he lies down to sleep (New International Version, 2011, I Kings 19:4). But God wasn’t
finished with Elijah. It is through Elijah that the coming Messiah is heralded so Elijah is
important (Shacham-rosby, 2016). Not only does God provide Elijah with much-needed grace,
but He also gives him food and drink to restore him (Merida, 2015).
Now that Elijah is restored and rejuvenated with a new understanding of God’s mercy
and grace, he leaves the mountain and finds Elisha. Despite Elijah’s doubts and fears, God still
has a plan and places Elijah back on track. Elijah finds his successor in Elisha. Successors are
important because having one can help make sure of the success of an organization (Kelan &
Wratil, 2018). In the passing of leadership to Elisha, God points out that no one is indispensable
(Merida, 2015). Elisha abandons all he has and follows Elijah to devote his life to God. "Elisha
then left his oxen and ran after Elijah. “Let me kiss my father and mother goodbye,” he said,
“and then I will come with you" (New International Version, 2011, I Kings 19:20). This transfer of
power is very powerful and the key to future events in the Bible. These types of events are
important not only throughout the Bible but in today’s business world.
