Are You Just Like Elijah?

James 5:17 & 18

1. He's Afraid. 1 Kings 19:3

like passions. He is just like us. basic human nature hasn't

changed since the dawn of man

Ps 27:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation;

whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of

whom shall I be afraid?

Ps 54:3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4 In God I will

praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear

what flesh can do unto me

2. He's Alone (his servant) 19:3

Ps 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me;

Rom 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels,

nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things

to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,

shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in

Christ Jesus our Lord.

3. He's Agonizing. 19:4

Rom 12:2- And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed

by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that

good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

4. He's Arrogant. 19:10

1 Sam 2:3 Talk no more so exceeding proudly; let not arrogancy come

out of your mouth: for the LORD [is] a God of knowledge,

and by him actions are weighed.

5. He's Abased [self]-[pity]. 19:10 & 14 no self-esteem, confidence

He focused on who and what was against him instead of Who was

with and for him.

Rom 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us,

who can be against us?

6. He's Angled

He had an [unbalanced] view of things he focused on the negative and

not on the positive. We can focus so much on present problems till

it gets all out of proportion.

We need to put everything aside and just worship Jesus.

Pro 17:22 - A merry heart doeth good [like] a medicine: but a

broken spirit drieth the bones.

7. He's All In

Elijah simply [shut down] on God temporarily.

Elijah, like us, struggled with his feelings even after this comforting

message from God. So God confronted Elijah's emotions and

commanded action. He told Elijah what to do next and informed

him that part of his loneliness was based on ignorance: 7,000

others in Israel were still faithful to God.
