TOPIC: EAT AND REST TEXT: 1 KINGS 19:1-8 No matter how spiritually powerful you are, like Elijah, you need to find time to eat and rest. Elijah was so tired and exhausted that he prayed to die! However, God knew that all that Elijah needed was to eat and rest and he would be refreshed to carry out the next assignment. Even God, our Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ, who is our perfect model, showed us the example of finding time to eat and rest. Mark 6:31 says, "Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, 'Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest'." When you are hungry and tired, please don't insist on carrying on or making any rash decisions to quit because you would make very terrible mistakes that you would live to regret later. Instead, when you are hungry and tired, take time to eat and rest!
Are you hungry and tired? PRAYER
Oh God, help me to eat and rest when I am hungry and tired, in Jesus name, Amen.
