Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Do you ever feel so exhausted that you just can’t go on? First Kings tells us that the prophet Elijah felt that way after a showdown with the evil Queen Jezebel.
He was asleep in the wilderness after having run for his life. The Bible tells us that an angel woke him up and said, “Get up and eat.” The angel provided a cake of bread baked over hot coals and a jar of water. There was no kitchen there in the desert, but God gave Elijah exactly what he needed.
You may not have battled an evil queen lately, but maybe you’ve been dealing with toddlers—or teenagers—all day, and you’re exhausted. God’s given us daily bread in the form of His Word. And He’s given us bread from heaven in the form of Christ.
Would you take comfort and rest in Him, asking for His help and strength?
