As Elijah was in the lowest place in His life, full of fear, running from his calling, he isolated himself in the wilderness and sat under a bush, wanting to die.God came to him and supernaturally provided for his needs.Elijah was then recommissioned by Yahweh with a brand new assignment.
Today the Father wants you to know that even if you’re not in a good place - spiritually, emotionally or physically - He is going to meet you and provide for all your needs. He knows where you are, even if no one else sees you. The Father is relentless in His pursuit of you. He loves you and hasn’t finished with you yet. Even if you’re not where you know you should be. Or you’ve wandered away. Or ran away. You aren’t hidden from Him.
You might have messed up or be struggling just to get through the day, you might feel so broken and wounded, you might be fearful and exhausted - but you haven’t forfeited your call or missed your destiny. You’re never too far, too damaged, too broken. God is bringing you supernatural provision for today and purpose for stepping into the future.
1 Kings 19:2-16
“So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say, “May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely, if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like that of one of them.” Elijah was afraid and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there, while he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life...” Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. The angel of the Lord came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” So he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of God. There he went into a cave and spent the night. And the word of the Lord came to him...
The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper. When Elijah heard it, he pulled his cloak over his face and went out and stood at the mouth of the cave. Then a voice said to him....”Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram. Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet.
“Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.”
