1 Kings 19

Discussion on God’s plan for the life of Elijah as he struggled with the emotional low point in his life and requested of the Lord that he might die. Elijah had just come from proving before the people the power of God over the false god baal by bringing down fire from heaven. He had slain the evil prophets of baal and had then even outran the chariot of King Ahab. He then had to flee into the wilderness to escape the wrath of the wicked Queen Jezebel. Despite the “emotional high” of the miracles he performed through God’s power, Elijah was now so despondent and depressed that he asked the Lord to let him die. Yet God did not answer this prayer as it was his will that Elijah be one of only two men in recorded history not to die but to be caught up directly into the spirit world.

So too in our own lives, no matter how bleak things appear, how dejected and defeated we feel or how much we think that God is not answering our prayers, he ultimately does have a plan for each of us.

Prayer for safe travels for Rabbit and family. Orange Julius had his very first F3 VQ and was grateful for the excellent guidance from Bruce both during the week and BC.
