Very rarely is life ever only good or only bad. Most of life is a mixed bag. We experience seasons of joy and times of turmoil. The journey of walking with God is one of trusting and holding onto God on the hills and in the valleys. Elijah’s life epitomizes this reality. Elijah was one of Israel’s ancient prophets; he walked with God closely and he walked through depression, doubt, fatigue, and disappointment. He also experienced victory and breakthrough that is nearly unprecedented in the Scriptures. From Elijah’s life we learn how to have a steady spirit in an uncertain world.
