Giving Up Part 2

16 Mar

I Kings 19:5-8
Then he [Elijah] lay down under the tree and fell asleep.

All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.”  He looked around, and there by his head was a cake of bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water.  He ate and drank and then lay down again.

The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.”  So he got up and ate and drank.  Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God.

While he was on the very edge of despair, Elijah received sustenance from the Lord.  As he was running away from the stress in his life, God provided him with supernatural food to sustain him.  God knew that the journey before him was too much for his flesh to handle.  So, He provided what Elijah needed.

I will let you in on a secret.  If you are following God’s plan for your life, then your journey is more than you can take.  You will need this supernatural food to strengthen you.

That is why your life experience must have a spiritual side to it.  Meeting with God in a quiet place is one of the most powerful, life-changing events you could ever plan for.  Don’t neglect your spiritual food.

Take the time to find nourishment for your soul in the Lord’s presence.  Cast your burdens upon Him and allow His strength to revive your spirit.
