Lessons Learned in the Valley

1 Kings 19:1-15  (ID: 1771)

Failure, it seems, often follows quickly on the heels of spiritual success. Walking us through the story of Elijah’s discouragement and despair, Alistair Begg explains that there are lessons God teaches us in the valleys that we might never learn elsewhere. Regardless of our success or failure, we are simply vessels being filled with God’s power. When we understand this, we can weather life’s disappointments and setbacks, keeping our focus to God rather than ourselves.


Elijah Flees Jezebel

1Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword.
