Everyone gets there at some point: the moment when energy runs out and enough is, well, enough. Serving has left the servant depleted. Ministry has drained all of the energy from body and soul. In times like these, the Lord sent His angel to care for Elijah’s physical needs, and then He called Elijah to come away to meet with Him so that He personally could restore Elijah spiritually.
The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.”—1 Kings 19:11
Prayer: Lord, Great “I AM,” You are my life-source, who restores me physically, emotionally and spiritually. Thank You for caring about my well-being. Remind me to come away with You to hear Your whisper and be replenished for ministry. Remind me that You are still (and always) at work; remind me to listen for Your word, which is more than enough to lead me into the future. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
