Elijah declares in 1 Kings 19:4, “Enough of this, God! Take my life—I’m ready to join my ancestors in the grave!” Exhausted, he fell asleep under the lone broom bush.”
What did God do? He sent an angel to wake him and remind him to eat. God provided a loaf of bread and a jug of water. Elijah ate and went back to sleep. Later, the angel of God returned and brought more food and water to replenish his tired, weak body. Nourished by the meal, Elijah was able to walk 40 days and nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. How about you? Have you felt this way recently? Stay tuned in next time for a prescription for discouragement.
