BATTLING THE BLUES

1 KINGS 18:41 – 19:15

Have you ever gone from a “mountaintop” spiritual high to a quick plunge into a pit of despair? That is what we see happening with Elijah in this passage. He went from being the Prophet of Fire to being a prophet of fear, complete with worry, depression, anger, and physical exhaustion. How did God respond to such a disappointing failure in Elijah? God responded with mercy and compassion, just as He would for each of us. Listen to hear what God did and His long-term goal for Elijah.
