It's Day 11 and we're in 1 Kings 19.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 3 - It's amazing (and true to life) how Elijah can move from such a stunning victory (chapter 18) to running for his life so quickly. I've often seen it in my life how in the space of just a few hours things can go from amazing victory to total meltdown.
- Verses 1-21 - There are tons of signs here that Elijah is dealing with what we would diagnose today as depression. Just because we are following God or working for God doesn't mean that we aren't going to deal with problems like everyone else does.

Your Comments And Questions:
- "My question is regarding the Widow's son. Did God spare his life to prove His truthfulness or was it a favor since Elijah was such a man of God?" - It could be either, although I also think that the woman felt guilty for something in her life (v. 18 - "Did you come to remind me of my sin. . .?"), so another factor in play may have been showing His mercy.
