Topic: Why Are You Running Away? [Thursday February 23, 2017]
Scripture: And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. 1 Kings 19:3
Thought For The Day: God brought many of us into this world to tackle the things we are running away from.
It has been established that depression is the enemy of destiny; depression has killed many people. Whenever depression is at work in your life, its major assignment is to terminate your destiny and make you irrelevant in life.
This was a challenge in the life of Elijah. He called down fire from Heaven to devour the prophets of Baal, but became depressed because Jezebel threatened to kill him. This made Elijah to run away.
The spirit of depression is a melancholic spirit that weighs a man down. Elijah had what it took to kill Jezebel but depression made him to run away. It was Elijah who anointed Elisha; Elisha in turn anointed Jehu, and Jehu killed Jezebel. So, the anointing to kill Jezebel originated from Elijah but he ran away from whom he was anointed to slay.
God brought you into this world to tackle the things you are running away from; but when you are depressed and discouraged, you begin to think that there is no need to live.
Beloved, stop running. Refuse to be depressed in life. You have what it takes to deal with the battles of your life. You have been anointed to slay what is pursuing you and you shall prevail in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: God brought many of us into this world to tackle the things we are running away from.
- Do not allow depression to settle in your life.
Take note of the challenges you have been running away from and tackle them with the Word of God.
