Have you ever said, “I’ve had enough, Lord”? If so, then you can identify with Elijah. You will have times in your life when you are drained physically and emotionally. You may have times when you are also exhausted spiritually as you keep giving, giving, and giving. You may also lose sight of the glory of God’s greatness as your circumstances overwhelm you. The good news in this story is that God is gracious to His weary saints. He gave Elijah food and rest; He spoke to Elijah from the mountain; and He gave Elijah a new vision for the future.
Make sure you take care of yourself physically. Make sure you are hearing and studying God’s Word. And ask God to give you a compelling vision for how you should fulfill the Great Commission. Don’t throw in the towel, but instead, strive to receive God’s renewing grace and press on.
Why is it important for Christians to maintain healthy rest, along with good eating habits and faithful rhythms of work and recreation?
