18:46 The hand, &c. - God gave him more than natural strength, wherebyhe was enabled to outrun Ahab's chariot, for so many miles together.He girded, &c. - That his garments, which were long, might not hinder him.Ran before Ahab - To shew how ready he was to honour and serve the king,that by this humble and self - denying carriage, it might appear, what hehad done was not from envy or passion, but only from a just zeal for God'sglory: that by his presence with the king and his courtiers, he mightanimate and oblige them to proceed in the reformation of religion: and, todemonstrate, that he was neither ashamed of, nor afraid for what he haddone, but durst venture himself in the midst of his enemies.

By strength shall no man prevail. Man's strength is limiting but with God, all things are possible. A day of favour from God is more than a thousand years of man's labour! I receive grace for uncommon speed in Jesus' name!

Those who depend on the Lord gain more and more strength. If you are to Jesus in life people may go ahead of you, but in his time you will overtake them.
