When Exhaustion Hits

When Exhaustion Hits

Do you ever get tired? Even Elijah—the prophet who courageously revealed God’s truth and power to a corrupt people and nation, the prophet who raised a boy to life and called down fire from heaven—yes, even Elijah got tired. The public display of God’s power in and through him was not without cost. Jezebel’s threat came at a point of extreme exhaustion, drained as he was after confronting the faithless, Baal-worshiping crowd and all that ensued. Fear washed over him. His only thought was to get away. He was done, but God was not done with him.

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. – 1 Kings 19:8

Prayer: Lord, when exhaustion hits and fear washes over me and I want to run, let me be found by You. Restore and revive me: body, soul, and spirit; heart, head, hands, and habits. In Jesus’ name, amen.
