“Then the angel of the Lord came again and touched him and said, “Get up and eat some more, or the journey ahead will be too much for you.””
1 Kings 19:7
As we continue with yesterday’s story, we remind ourself that Elijah was in hiding, running away from Jezebel who wanted to kill him. He was so in despair that he too wanted to die. Yet God in His divine provision, provided Elijah with the comfort He needed. Twice, the angel of the Lord, fed Elijah and regenerated his spirit to continue his journey. God knew that the road ahead was tough for Elijah, so He gave Elijah what he needed.
God also speaks today into our lives when we are tired and don’t have the strength to carry on. God says to us, ‘Stop, rest and refresh in me, because you don’t have the strength to carry on anymore. The road ahead is too tough.’ Maybe today you too need some supernatural refreshment from the Lord. It is ok to stop and rest in Him In fact it is a good spiritual discipline to do so. So if you are tired and thirsty Jesus says to you, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest.” Rest and abide in Him.
Thank you for thoughtful words of comfort.
