No one is Hopeless who knows the God of Hope

King Ahab told his wife Jezebel everything that Elijah had done and how he had put all the prophets of Baal to death. She sent a message to Elijah. “May the gods strike me dead if by this time tomorrow I don’t do the same thing to you that you did to the prophets.” [restrict]  Elijah was afraid and fled for his life; he took his servant and went to Beersheba in Judah.  Leaving the servant there, Elijah walked a whole day into the wilderness. He stopped and sat down in the shade of a tree and wished he would die. “It’s too much LORD,” he prayed. “Take away my life; I might as well be dead.” He lay down under the tree and fell asleep. Suddenly an angel touched him and said “wake up and eat.” He looked around and saw a loaf of bread and a jar of water near his head. He ate and drank, and lay down again. The LORD’s angel returned and woke him up a second time, saying “Get up and eat, or the trip will be too much for you.” 1 Kings 19:1-7 TEV [/restrict]
