They took him to the top of the hill: they meant to throw him over the cliff.
Being in God’s employ is a matter far harder than it seems. You never know what you will be asked next. Elijah was sent not to his own people but to the foreign widow, and Elisha to the Syrian Naaman. Those who are called to be a prophet will often go unrecognised. That hurts because prophets by their calling are public people.
Whatever your call, just when you think you have it worked out someone dies or great changes take place or someone changes the rules. What attitude do we need to have? ‘I thirst for you, my God.’ We just say yes to God. And then bravely live in hope.
