When famine comes, feasting ceases. Drought brings desperation. These are the conditions when Elijah the prophet bursts onto the scene. This man of God says and does outstanding things in service of Yahweh. In his premier, he denounces king Ahab, predicts a long drought, manufactures food for a widow, and raises her only son from dead. Each outstanding act showcases the power and provision of our God, who is able to do more than we could ever ask.
