Whirlwind: "The Place of Preparation"
The word “whirlwind” is such a great metaphor to communicate the unpredictability of life. Sometimes one activity can shift you through a “whirlwind of emotions.” Other times, the only way to describe a day is to say, “today has been a whirlwind” meaning a lot of different things happened, one after another. Maybe that’s how you see your week, your year, or maybe your life. And as much as our lives can be a “whirlwind,” perhaps, no better word can describe the life of the biblical story of Elijah. Elijah’s life was marked with boldness and despair, daring faith and intense fear, victory in the face of a nation yet loneliness in the midst of despair. As much as his life was a “whirlwind” as a man, the epistle of James says he was “just like us." What we will see in our series “Whirlwind” will not be due to Elijah's goodness and power but God's greatness and might working through someone “just like us.” This fall, we are going to look into his life and see our “whirlwind” lives as opportunities for God to use us in magnificent ways.
