Wisdom For Each Day – November 14, 2014

We all experience discouragement, and sometimes it can be almost overwhelming.

Elijah…had been one of God’s most faithful servants, never wavering in the face of disaster.  God used Elijah to overcome the pagan prophets of Baal and demonstrate to all the nation that God alone was worthy of their worship.

But now, only days later, discouragement and depression have almost overwhelmed him.  …Elijah flees into the desert and concludes he is a failure.

God showed Him His glory, reminding Elijah of the greatness of the God he served.  When discouragement comes and you wonder if you can go on, remember Elijah – and be encouraged.

[Elijah] came to a broom tree, sat down under it and prayed that he might die.  “I have had enough, Lord,” he said.

1 Kings 19:4
