That One Question: “What Are YOU Doing Here?”

February 12, 2018

I sometimes wish we knew what’s been left out of the Bible, or what’s between the lines.

For example, when this question was asked —

He went into a cave and spent the night.
And the word of the LORD came to him:
“What are you doing here, Elijah?”
1st Kings 19:9

— was the emphasis such that it was heard as, “What are YOU doing here?”

Good question. Deserves a good answer.

Let’s try it on for size this week.

Let’s listen to God asking us that same question all week long: “What are YOU doing here?” Not somebody else, but us…we ourselves.

Let’s ask ourselves that same question this week: “What are YOU doing here?” Not that person over there, but what am I doing, in whatever “here” I might be throughout this week?

It’s already colored and flavored my day as I’ve answered it more than once; may it be a blessing to you as well.

See you back here tomorrow.
