But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers. And as he lay and slept under a juniper tree, behold, then an angel touched him, and said unto him, Arise and eat. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. And he did eat and drink, and laid him down again. And the angel of the Lord came again the second time, and touched him, and said, Arise and eat; because the journey is too great for thee. And he arose, and did eat and drink, and went in the strength of that meat forty days and forty nights unto Horeb the mount of God.
1 Kings 19:4-8
Elijah despaired even of life and wished for death. At his wit’s end, fed twice by an angel, both to revive him and empower him for the lengthy odious journey ahead to the mount of God. The Majesty double or even triple feeding is for a purpose. We must learn to eat more when God dish deep. Many will say, oh that is too much, too deep. I do not need it. So, they are used to feeding lightly on the spiritual food. Our God is never a waster. The journey ahead is long and hard and those who do not fully take advantage of the extra meals will fall by the wayside, unable to make it to the next level of revelation and encounter with God.
