Elijah - Superhero, or just like us?

Duncan Banks

Who is you favourite movie superhero? Batman? Wolverine? And if you could have one superhero power what would it be? X-ray vision – so you could scratch off the winning card maybe?

Do you ever see any of those famous bible characters as a kind of superhero? Because if you do, they become untouchable and out of reach. Elijah raised the dead, called down fire from heaven and bought a nation to its knees with one prayer – yet James, the brother of Jesus, described him as completely human as we are.

And in all this humanity, our superhero found himself in a place where all the good stuff had dried up in his life. Ring any bells for you? God was humbling him privately so he could do something truly amazing with him publicly. Spectacular in fact…

“It’s doubtful that God can bless a man greatly until he’s hurt him deeply” AW Tozer
