Bible Text: 1 Kings 19:3-9a |


If it can happen to Elijah, it can happen to you and me. If Elijah could become sidetracked in his faith, and take his focus off God, we can too. After a huge victory on Mount Carmel, Elijah experienced a huge let-down, and ran for his life from Queen Jezebel. In fear and discouragement, Elijah wanted to give up being a prophet and die. Yet, God had more for Elijah to do. God sent an angel to the exhausted Elijah to strengthen him. Elijah then walked 200 miles to Mount Sinai to meet with God. Take care of yourself, spiritually. Don’t take your focus off God. Keep moving forward in faith because coasting, spiritually and relationally, is only good for going down hill.
