Demoralization goes with the job for service pioneers. Neglected objectives, putting out flames, staff issues, disappointing individuals, and general tiredness all add to demoralization. When it burdens us, how might we uncover? The life of the prophet Elijah gives us trust.
I Kings 18-19 recounts the account of his astonishing encounter with the prophets of Baal. The general population of Israel had accumulated on Mount Carmel alongside 450 prophets of Asherah. They set up a give up and the 450 agnostic prophets summoned their divine beings to give rain. Nothing happened. At that point Elijah summoned the one, genuine God who demonstrated His energy by expending the yield as well as consummation the dry season.
You’d believe that after God appeared in such an intense way, twice, that Elijah would be on a profound and enthusiastic high. Not really. After these awesome triumphs, he kept running for his life, supposing he was the main genuine prophet left. He actually needed to kick the bucket. Be that as it may, God did not allow him to sit unbothered. I Kings 19 clarifies how he administered to him.
To begin with, plan for a passionate plunge after profound achievement. I’ve discovered that demoralization frequently takes after a profound high. Among different reasons, it’s the body’s reaction to stretch. Mondays are frequently the most disheartening days for ministers after a serious Sunday. Plan for this certainty.
Second, physically restore. After Elijah needed to bite the dust, God gave nourishment to him through a holy messenger and had him take two long rests. After an otherworldly high, deal with your body to give it an opportunity to re-invigorate. Additional rest, sound sustenance, work out, and accomplishing something fun can enable you to recoup.
Third, still your spirit to hear God’s delicate voice. After Elijah fled, God addressed him in a “whisper.” Often Satan will assault us most after profound triumphs with censuring and enticing musings. When he does, turn your heart to the Lord and tune in to His calm, yet reassuring voice.
