As James reminds us in James 5:17-18, Elijah was a man just like us. He knew the highs of defeating the prophets of Baal on mount Carmel, and the lows of having a mental breakdown after Jezebel threatened to kill him.
Things to think about as you read 1 Kings 17 :
- How do you cope in a season when the things in your life (finances, jobs, popularity, relationships, health) seem to be drying up, and why does God allow us to have these seasons
- Would you really see being fed by ravens (an unclean animal) as God's provision
- Do you need to hear a 'fresh' word from God
