Elijah was like that too. If you remember his story in 1st Kings he had just experienced one of the greatest victories recorded. He challenged hundred of prophets of Baal and he won! Instead of enjoying the spotlight Elijah fled to the dessert and prayed that God might take his life. Talk about going from one extreme to the other???? Elijah went from the mountaintop experience into the valley of despair all in one day!
Sometimes we are just like that aren't we? We suffer changes of our attitude and when we do it leaves us discouraged. We too need what Elijah needed.....REFRESHMENT. If you recall the story God first gave Elijah sleep and rest under the tree. Then an angel appeared to him with food and water. Eventually Elijah's strength and courage was restored.
The only true source of refreshment is through Christ. Not man, not your Sunday school teacher, not even your Pastor but through Christ.
We all will experience those wilderness moments. Without the dessert moments in our life we cannot fully appreciate the mountaintop moments.
May we depend on Christ to restore our souls and to refresh our spirits as we seek HIS will....(NOT OURS) and accept HIS PEACE.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
