Days of Elijah
Character in time of Crisis – Month 2 Day 1
Today marks the beginning of the second month of these notes. I thought it would be good to mark this by showing this amazing video of United States marines singing along heartily to Robin Mark’s Days of Elijah.
Elijah and Elisha both showed exceptional character in times of crisis. Likewise, these brave marines have shown character and courage on many occasions when faced with crisis after crisis. I think there is something very reassuring about hearing these Marines sing this well-known worship song so lustily – OORAH!
These are the days of Elijah,
Declaring the word of the Lord
And these are the days of Your servant Moses,
Righteousness being restored.
And though these are days of great trial,
Of famine and darkness and sword,
Still, we are the voice in the desert crying
“Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”
Behold He comes riding on the clouds,
Shining like the sun at the trumpet call,
Lift your voice, it’s the year of jubilee,
And out of Zion’s hill salvation comes
