Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” I Kings 19:13b.
This passage of Scripture is from the encounter the prophet Elijah had with GOD after running away from Jezebel, when she had just sent a message that she would kill him within the next 24 hours, causing him to fear and run away. This was on the back of the prophet killing 450 prophets of Baal, which was considered a great victory for the prophet and the nation of Israel.
Prophet Elijah found himself in a place of despair, doubt, fear and depression all because of a threat. In our Christian walk there’ll come a time of great victories and testimonies, but soon after the fightback from the enemy in the form of empty threats will be inevitable. It is these threats that aim to drive us into a place of despair, fear and doubt. They come for us to doubt the victory, testimony and the GOD behind the victory.
The time for a pity party is over, come out of that place of despair, fear, doubt and depression. Take up your armor and push on to what GOD has said about you and your life. Go back to where GOD has called you, don’t allow the enemy’s lies and empty threats to shift you. You have an assignment from GOD. What are you doing here?
In our Christian walk there’ll come a time of great victories and testimonies, but soon after – the fightback from the enemy in the form of empty threats – will be inevitable
