Arise and Eat

Screenshot (111)“Arise and eat.”

That’s what God said to Elijah when he (Elijah that is) wanted to die. Then God said it again… “Arise and eat, you’ve got a long journey ahead of you.”

Friend, God says it’s time to knock off the starvation diet and eat! You’ve got a long journey ahead of you and you will need the strength. Time to lay aside the number on the scales. Time to lay down the hunger strike. Eat. Your prayer has been heard.

  • Rise up.
  • Focus.
  • Fuel.

Forty days later Elijah was in a cave in the stone wall while God passed by. There was a hurricane, an earthquake, and then a fire… but God wasn’t in any of those.

Wait, what? God wasn’t in the natural disasters? (Would someone please tell the preachers that?!) Truth: God wasn’t in the big overpowering noise and destruction!

After the fire came a gentle and quiet whisper. That was God.

God is not a screamer.

(That one bears repeating.)

God is not a screamer.

“Arise and eat” 1 Kings 19:5

“Arise and eat” again in verse 7.
