1 Kings 19:2Words to discourage the plan God has for you….
Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” She was speaking of the prophets big Baal…
The devil knows our weakness, and will use it or them if we don’t pay attention to the lessons that come to reveal our weakness. Elijah was afraid of Jezebel because she had shown power killing all his prophets but those that had been hidden by Obadiah… There were some other inner issues as well that brought Elijah and Jezebel together also.
Then he was afraid, and he arose and ran for his life and came to Beersheba, which belongs to Judah, and left his servant there.
Elijah still demonstrating fear after all the prophets of Baal he overcame… Elijah prayed the fire of God down, laughed and mocked the prophets of Baal. But when you get to the 19 the chapter Jezebel finds out and send a threat wrapped with fear and he runs for his life again into the wilderness… What do you think about Elijah ladies and gentlemen? Major prophet fears the representative of the anti Christ?
Think about how fear comes to stop you, paralyze or even put you back in your past.
Have a blessed day!
