Elijah: Tug of War – Between Two Worlds  1 Kings 16:29-17:6

From the Garden of Eden to the present day, the struggle of humanity has been a tug of war between choosing faith or self. We focus in on the Prophet Elijah in our new series “Elijah: Tug of War.” God sent Elijah to his people to attempt to tug them back to faithfulness. We still struggle today between following the true God or the gods of happiness, success, and pleasure.

The song, “Touch the Sky” illustrates the battle of realizing that true success and fulfillment comes when we lower ourselves and elevate God instead. The line “I touch the sky when my knees hits the ground” is about finding God through surrender.  Matthew 10:39 says, “Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” It’s when we release control and choose to worship Him over the empty gods we’ve created that we find the fullness of life.
