A Time to Re-Fire the Coming Elijahs!

Elijah’s Journey to Horeb

“Ahab told Jezebel everything that Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, ‘May the gods punish me and do so severely if I don’t make your life like the life of one of them by this time tomorrow!’

“Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-Sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, ‘I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my fathers.’ Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

“Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, ‘Get up and eat.’ Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So, he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, ‘Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.’ So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked 40 days and 40 nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night” (1 Kings. 19:1-9).

For the last few years, it seems as though I have been running at a pace with God I have never before. Now mind you, this is a good thing. This has not just been in ministry but in my personal life as well. Many, many changes; most of them good. Nonetheless, major changes and some with major, ongoing battles.

The last of these events was the publishing and release of my second book. “Women Living with Broken Men: A Christian Perspective.” Then all of a sudden, a wave of sadness, near tears, lack of energy, exhaustion and lack of interest hit like a ton of bricks. I cannot identify these symptoms with any one event.

Hmm, seemed like I was experiencing depression! However, I had nothing to be depressed about, really, and felt blessed in a number of areas. One of the assessments I got from someone was, “must be demonic.” I am not one to blame everything on the devil. But I was open to whatever to make this go away. This is not me! I had been feeling that the Lord was wanting me to take June and July off from major ministry events in 2018.

I also had to admit that at the pace I was running, there was little time for anything, more time with God, etc. When I did have the time, I found that I was too tired to do what I wanted to do or care to do whatever I needed to.

I began to hear in my spirit, “Elijah, at the Brook,” over and over. I went to a Christian meeting last night and there were several comments about…
