1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me 7,000 in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which has not kissed him. GM, Elijah was a chosen and great prophet of God. He praised God even though it wasn't popular. However, Elijah suffered from a little bit of arrogance. Elijah was talking to God as if the show wouldn't go on if he was to die because where he was from everyone else was wicked. Elijah was telling God how no one else can work like he works but God told him that he has 7,000 servants in Israel who has never bowed against me. As we chase success and reach success you always have to remember who put you in that position. Never act as you are the reason for your position. God can put you up and pride can take you down. It's ok to pray for success but ALWAYS pray for a humble heart to be able to handle success. Be blessed.
