The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him
and said, "Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you." So
he got up and ate and drank. Strengthened by that food, he traveled
forty days and forty nights until he reached Horeb, the mountain of
God. There he went into a cave and spent the night. 1 Kings 19:7-9
Running on empty. With only a meal
supplied by God, Elijah set out on a forty day and forty night journey.
God was obviously fueling Elijah in a special way. Nourishment comes
in different forms. Food will sustain our physical bodies but our
spiritual lives also need to be fed. Spiritual nourishment comes
through study of Scripture and prayer. It prepares us to confront
the challenges of each day with the mindset of God. Running on empty
leaves us open to temptation and sin. So keep your tank filled so
that you don't run out of gas before you reach your goal.
