And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time. And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beersheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. But he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the LORD came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
1 Kings 19:1-8 (KJV)

Let us learn a great lesson from this passage. We can see the mighty act and victory that God has wrought through Elijah, destroying all the false prophets, cleansing the land of idolatry, turning the people's hearts back to God, calling down fire and rain, but then we see him running from a single woman! Lesson: As soon as God has used, run immediately to your secret chamber of prayers and fellowship, and be refreshes and fed in the spirit. Don't just over-celebrate the victory. Every victory, every blessings must be used to draw closer to the Mount of God.
Yours in Christ, pastor Festus Nsoha.
