Elijah in the Wilderness
When we meet Elijah in our Bible story, he is fleeing for his life. Elijah has just received a death threat from King Ahab’s wife Jezebel. Elijah is upset as he travels across the border into Judah, where he might be safe. Then he leaves his servant and continues for another day’s travel, before settling down under a tree. Elijah is completely alone, exhausted, and full of hopelessness. He asks God for death: “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.”
But God does not send death to Elijah. Instead, an angel comes, and touches him, and says: “Get up and eat.” Elijah discovers bread, and water. He eats and drinks and lays down; and again, the angel comes to touch him, and offer him food. Elijah’s spirit and his body are strengthened and Elijah is strong enough to travel on for forty days and forty nights, until he reaches Horeb, the mount of God, where the word of God comes to him.



Table Talk
1 Kings 19:5-8 Elijah sat down under a tree. He was discouraged, tired, and hungry. He felt alone. He was tired of fighting against Ahab and Jezebel. He was tired of running. He prayed and told God that he wanted to die. Finally, Elijah fell asleep. An angel gently woke Elijah up, leaving him something to eat and drink. Elijah ate and fell back asleep. A second time an angel woke up Elijah and left him food. Elijah ate and continued in the strength of that food for 40 days and 40 nights. God helped Elijah.



• Tell about a time you wanted to give up, but you didn’t. What helped you keep going?
• Elijah had perseverance, which means to continue regardless of obstacles or circumstances.
• Elijah had physical needs, what were they and how were they met?
• List some ways you show yourself compassion and take care of your physical needs.

Prayer
God of Compassion,
Every living thing has needs.
We breathe, eat, drink and rest.
We are like Elijah, rebuilding our bodies with your compassion.
When we feel weak, tired, or discouraged, please help us to remember that we are not alone.
Thank you for providing strength to carry on through Jesus.
Amen.
