Fear and All

today's reading.
1 Kings 19:1    Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword...

the blog.
Elijah and the prophets of Baal is one of my favorite accounts in the Bible. Elijah's boldness and how he takes on the world for God totally energizes me. But then, we get to 1 Kings 19 and Elijah has a complete meltdown. He gets a death threat from Jezebel, fear takes over, and things just spiral downward from there. Hmm….So now what? Well, what I see is that Elijah is human, just like you and me. And the cool thing about getting a look at Elijah's big "down" is seeing how God sticks right with Elijah and lovingly speaks with and encourages him to continue doing His (God's) work.

So have you had any Elijah experiences? How has God lovingly stood with you when you've been fearful, dejected, hurting, alone? Tami W.
