The Lord does not want anything other than your heart. "When they gave their hearts to the Lord, He was quick to grant them the Holy Spirit. God wants your heart to be sensitive all the time. We are ambassadors of Christ. Everywhere we go, we must show the image of Christ. Everywhere you are, you must make people smell Christ. It is through you that men see that there is a God.
1 Kings 18:16-21
These were such difficult times, they were looking for Elijah to kill him. Several army leaders came to Elijah, rudely, and Elijah sent fire down on them. When the king sent Obadiah, he did not come with arrogance but with respect and fear. He who touches you does not know the risk he is running. He who touches a son of God will never be at ease. "Every place that the sole of your foot treads on, I will give it to you" (Joshua 1:3) We are conquerors. But this, we still have to believe. Whatever I want, I must have. God will take care of all the blockages. We are not to walk as beggars but as sure. Your Father has everything. Our God is with us. "Do not touch my anointed ones, And do not harm my prophets!" (1 Chronicles 16:22) Elijah had been commissioned by God. You too are God's people.
1 Kings 18:1-17
Elijah spoke gently to Obadiah because Obadiah loved the Lord and had protected God's servants. Obadiah was afraid but Obadiah did not know that it was God who had created this meeting.
Elijah knew this. Elijah comes before Ahab. The trouble came from Ahab because he was led by Jezebel. What characterized Jezebel was the makeup. Why put on false nails to look like an animal? It is a spirit. When you have this spirit, you become a slave to it. You can't go out without putting on those fake nails. Fake nails weaken your nails. Also, some women can't go out without makeup, but you damage your face. Don't let your children do this, you are destroying them. You want to hide your flaws, but you don't realize that by doing so, your flaws are seen. When you wear makeup, you are embarrassed because you will stain the person when you say hello, when you sweat it will drip. When you do this, it is as if you were saying to God: "You have not done your work well".
If you are so wonderful, then stop the makeup. Everything God does is perfect. Can the clay tell the potter what to do? Sisters, we must stop these things! "For you are dust, and to dust you shall return." (Genesis 3:19) God did not say you have to be dirty. Take care of your skin but don't change your skin.
May God strengthen you, help you and bless you!
