I once had a boss that I felt constantly gave me too much work. I was forever running, never got breaks, and could never get caught up. One day, I heard him and his boss speaking; they weren’t aware I was anywhere around. When the owner of the business asked if I could handle yet another assignment, my boss answered, “If you want something done and done right the first time, give it to the busiest person.”
At once, I felt both proud and exhausted. Sometimes, we simple work ourselves into a frazzle.
In 1 Kings 19, we join Prophet Elijah when he is frazzled. In fact, in verse 4, he has lied down, declared that he has reached his end, and asked the Lord to take his life.
Instead, the Lord twice sends an angel to strengthen him with food and water on which he can go strong for another 40 days and nights.
Never think that you are not up to the task, for the Lord will never ask you to do a job without providing you the means of accomplishing it.
Fear Not, for the Lord is not finished with you.
