HE GAVE HIM A PARTY INSTEAD OF A BEATING!
At a stage in Elijah’s ministry, he fainted and was to give up. In fact, he asked God to kill him. The year is in the third quarter already.
As you use this devotional today, you may be in the valley of your journey; you may be depressed and just confused about what this year or what life itself has in stock for you. Rejoice however, that if Elijah received grace and strength to finish, then you will finish the 2nd half of the year in honour and not in condemnation/ BASIC SCRIPTURE: 1 KINGS 19: 1-8 shame.
OH! NOTE THIS: GOD DID NOT REBUKE ELIJAH FOR BEING REAL WITH HIM. HE DID NOT REBUKE HIM FOR HIS FEAR AND ERRORS! HE GAVE HIM A PARTY! WOW! What a God!
Elijah had that supernatural cake, drank that cruse of water, and was strengthened to go for 40 days in the strength of the Lord. Just when he was about to give up, a “divine party” was organized for him and strength came. He received power to continue. No matter how 2022 has been, it is time to arise and eat again.
It is time to renew your strength for the journey ahead by waiting on the Lord (Isaiah 40:31) often in this 2nd half of the year! As I always admonish, you can also learn to take Holy Communion (breaking of bread) personally and with your family from time to time.
