Elijah’s Despair

So far, we have seen Elijah’s faithfulness to God in the face of great opposition.  We’ve seen a courageous Elijah who had deep faith, amazing courage and a powerful prayer life.  But this Sunday morning we will see a different side of Elijah — a man of God who is worn-out and discouraged. 

I cannot blame him for his behavior, for if I did, my other fingers would be pointing right back at me.  We’ve all felt the let-down that comes after times of intense stress, or even joy.  God ministers to Elijah in very practical ways and gives us a glimpse of what He wants to do for us, and how we should encourage each other.  See you Sunday!
