Be encouraged, Elijah

Elijah said to the people,"I am the last of the Lord's prophets." (1 Kings 18:22)

(Elijah replied), "I am the only one left, and now they want to take my life too." (1 Kings 19:10)

He (Elijah) said , "I am the only one left, and now they want to take my life too." (1 Kings 19:14)

Then the Lord said, "But I have preserved those who remain in Israel, totaling seven thousand—all those whose knees haven’t bowed down to Baal and whose mouths haven’t kissed him." (1 Kings 19:18)

Elijah, the great Prophet, thought he was the only one left who was serving the Lord. Did you get that? This capital "P" Prophet was mistaken. He was very discouraged. He seriously thought he was the last man standing for God. He wasn't off by one or two, but thousands.

Maybe you are a prophetic person or an intercessor. You've had a glimpse of how things ought to be, but things are quite the opposite. A pit fall for you is discouragement that can turn to resentment towards people and even towards God.

Prophets and intercessors need fellowship and encouragement too. You need people who "get you" and people who have a different passion, but for the same Christ, who love you without condition. Let's work this thing out together.
