Lessons on God and Godly Living
from One Flawed Human to Another
If you find yourself in a very dark time of your spiritual journey—asking questions, looking for elusive answers, thinking no one understands—let me introduce you to Elijah.
James tells us that Elijah was human just like us. This flawed human being walked into the throne room of a king to confront sin then hid for three and a half years while the people suffered the serious consequences of idolatry and unrepentance. Elijah lived the ultimate mountaintop experience only to run away in fear when he came down from that mountain. Yet, God still used him.
You will take a 6-week, in-depth look at the life of Elijah, and as you study him and the kings around him, you will identify your idols and explore the impact your life has on those around you. When God hides Elijah, you will learn valuable lessons about God’s provision. As you watch Elijah struggle through the wilderness, you will discover some pitfalls of a life committed to God and explore ways of avoiding them. Elijah experienced passion, provision, power, burnout, and restoration. Join me as we discover what a human like us is capable of doing when they are wholly committed to God.
This is a great study of how God is always with us and wants us to grow in his grace through all of our circumstances. Trisha shows us through Elijah’s story that God is calling us out of our fear to live the life he has called us to live. One of my favorite things in this study is how Trisha digs deeper into the origin of words and interpretations of scriptures. When I understand the circumstances around the story and the true meaning of God’s spoken word, I can visualize Elijah on his journey. I can see myself there and see God speaking to me as he speaks to Elijah. I am forever grateful for Trisha’s dedication to the truth of God’s word. —Bev P.
