Coming Down the Mountain

1 Kings 18-19
After Elijah experienced God move mightily upon the mountaintop, his joy was short-lived due to following opposition.  God’s instruction to Elijah during his depressed state provides direction for our own troubled souls.

Main Points

  • Anyone can follow God during the revival, but only mature believers can follow Him during the routine.
  • Your emotions can be one of your greatest friends and yet one of your greatest enemies.
  • It is supremely important to learn how to grow from the spiritual highs without becoming dependent upon them.
  • Don’t let fatigue, fear, faithlessness, or frustration distract you from God.
  • Despair often leads to a self-centered perspective.
  • My boast today can become my complaint tomorrow.
  • We need a revelation of God more than we need an answer from God.
  • When we only anticipate the fire from God’s hand, we often overlook the whisper from God’s mouth.
  • Sometimes the only way to combat ministry discouragement is to continue ministry faithfulness.
  • When discouraged, listen to God, finish the task, invest in another, and surround with support.
  • One of Satan’s greatest lies is to tell you that you are all alone.
