1 Kings 19:18 – Knees which have not bowed

1 Kings 19:18
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

-The Lord here tells Elijah that He has preserved for Himself a remnant.  Notice who this remnant consists of; those who have not followed another god.  There are days of great spiritual victory; days where we preach a powerful sermon, or lead a sinner to Christ, or win a great victory over our flesh.  But there are other days where we cannot lay claim to such victory, days where it can only be said that we didn’t bow down to the powers of darkness or lay down for the world.  Take heart when those days come; it may not feel like you did much, but the Lord is always pleased with those who simply said “no” to another way.
