The Secret of Elijah That Every Believer Should Know

he Secret of Elijah that every believer should know number one the prophet who

faced discouragement and exhaustion imagine a man who witnessed and performed some of the most impressive

Miracles recorded in the Bible this man is Elijah the prophet of the Northern

Kingdom of Israel however even the most dedicated Servants of God Can Face discouragement and exhaustion allowing

their circumstances to suffocate their daily confidence in God after witnessing

and executing extraordinary Feats Elijah succumbed to depression and fear Jezebel

enraged by his actions threatened his life in Kings we read Ahab told

Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets of B with the sword so Jezebel sent a

messenger to Elijah saying May the gods deal with me be it ever so severely if

court and even the country however things did not go as he had planned leaving him deeply

there the situation raises the question of whether Elijah’s flight was the

protect Elijah it is unclear whether God’s intention was to protect him in Jezreel or to remove him from there
