For Thursday, August 20, 2015
“Observations Under the Juniper Tree” Part 3

HOST: Andrew Crowe


Show Notes:

  • This week, Andrew examines two symptoms of depression that the prophet Elijah shows.

Outline of this episode:

  •  Appetite/Weight Issues

    o   1 Kings 19:5-8

    o   It cannot be helped but wonder if Elijah just stopped eating altogether.

    o   Was fed enough to help him over the next 40 days.

    o   People will often stop eating or start overeating.

  • Feelings of Hopelessness/Pessimism

    o   1 Kings 19:10, 14

    o   The word jealous means zealous.

    o   “God, it’s hopeless…the whole of Israel is unfaithful, they do not care about worshipping you, and they murder anyone who preaches in your name. I’m the only one who is faithful.

    o   Notice the focus on the word “I.”

    o   We can easily fall into the realm of being self-centered while depressed.

  • Next week: God’s care for Elijah’s condition.
