Giant of Discouragement
Scripture: 1 Kings 19
A Recipe for Discouragement (1 Kings 19)
- Elijah feels discouraged, alone and a failure. He is ready to quit (19.4, 10).
God Rescues Elijah from Discouragement: 4 Observations
- God does NOT immediately change Elijah’s circumstances
- God is present with Elijah (19.11-13)
- God restores Elijah’s vocation (19.15-16)
- God enlarges Elijah’s perspective (19. 15-18)
Take Home Idea: We conquer discouragement when we shift our focus from our circumstances to God’s presence and plan.
