Have you ever given your very best, and still it wasn’t enough to accomplish your goal? Pretty frustrating, huh? This latest Eliyahu ben David Crossword Contest focuses on a period in the life of Elijah the Prophet when he was experiencing that very same emotion. In fact, he was so distressed about his perceived failure that he asked God to take his life! While I don’t recommend such prayers, I’m happy to note that YHWH answered Elijah’s prayer, not by taking his life, but by addressing Elijah’s underlying concerns and then sending him out to do battle another day. Sometimes all we really need is a little attitude adjustment, no? You can find this account in 1 Kings 19. All of the answers for our latest Eliyahu ben David Crossword Contest can be found in that chapter.
This section of Scripture makes for a stimulating Bible study, and we are presently discussing this passage in my radio program, On the Road to Tsiyon. Come and listen if you want to learn a lot more about it.
As for this new crossword contest, play it for fun and maybe win a prize! What prize you ask? An autographed copy of Announcing Judgment Day – a unique Hebraic perspective on the Book of Revelation and Bible Prophecy.
