God Provided for Elijah

God Fed Him
o 1 Kings 19:5-8
o It is important that one maintains a proper diet when the feelings of depression overtake them.
o What we put in our bodies is going to have an effect on our mood.

God Protected Him
o 1 Kings 19:5-8
o While studying for this, there was notice of something that never occurred to me. The angel of the Lord came and provided food for Elijah but there may have been another purpose.
o Joseph Benson mentions, “But he is wakened out of his sleep, and finds himself not only well provided for with bread and water, but, which is more, attended by an angel, who guarded him when he slept, and called him to his victuals once and again when they were ready for him.”
