You can just imagine the scene. 450 prophets of Baal yelling, screaming and prancing around. They were probably cutting themselves as well as shouting to their non-answering god. By comparison Elijah stands resolute and still. He is still able to goad them. Maybe your god is deep in thought, or busy or sleeping. From morning till noon these prophets carried on their carry on.
450 against one (I notice the other prophets of God kept their heads below the parapet making Elijah think he was alone.) But this one plus God was more than enough. Our God doesn’t sleep, travel or go missing. He is always there for us, whether we are in trouble or rejoicing. We need to make sure we go to him in joy as well as in pain.
