Grace for you today !
Christ My Exalting Glory!
“But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he prayed that he might die, and said, “It is enough! Now, Lord, take my life, for I am no better than my fathers!” Then as he lay and slept under a broom tree, suddenly an angel touched him, and said to him, “Arise and eat.””
I Kings 19:4-5 NKJV
Elijah was greatly discouraged and in his frustration he preferred to die to end his agony . His zeal for the Lord had dwindled down dramatically . His heroic act of bringing fire from heaven was forgotten and righteousness was not restored. Still, the wicked Queen Jezebel continued to reign through her wickedness. The exasperated prophet only saw hopelessness & doom.
My beloved, there may be times when we encounter hardship and despair which seem never ending despite the fact we are continuing our confession that we are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. These are the testing times.
But, God sent His angel to comfort Elijah at this point and commanded him to arise to shake off the dust (discouragement and doubts ) and eat . “Eat” means to have a fresh understanding of His righteousness in Christ.
Yes my beloved, understanding His righteousness is progressive and every fresh understanding of God’s righteousness in Christ takes you to a new mile stone. Hallelujah!
Let’s seek His righteousness as the first & foremost thing and all other things shall be added to us surely & certainly during this week in Jesus Name! Amen 🙏
