The contrast between 1 Kings 18 and 1 Kings 19 are startling. In Chapter 18, Elijah is bold and courageous. He experienced God’s supernatural strength to do extraordinary things. Then, in Chapter 19, we find Elijah exhausted, depressed and fearful.

While Elijah was obedient to God, and God “showed up” - Elijah was expecting a different outcome. He was disappointed that the results of his obedience did not turn out like he expected. How often we forget that while we are responsible for trusting and obeying God, we are NOT responsible for the results of that obedience.

When we allow the results and expectations to become the source of our happiness – the result is often depression and fear. I never noticed before, but when Elijah sought shelter under a broom tree - rather than in the Almighty - did you notice that we never see Elijah calling out to the Lord for help or direction? Instead, we see Elijah asking God to allow him to die. Immediately after Elijah falls asleep, God sends an angel to Elijah....encouraging him to "get up and eat." God does not tell him to "pull yourself out of this funk and get with the program".....instead, he allows Elijah a time of rest and restoration. A much needed time of rest and restoration

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
