God Begins to Restore Elijah’s Soul

Read: 1 Kings 19:1-8
Text: 1 Kings 19:5-8

So while the journey itself was not authorized by God, God was guiding it because he was going to use it to teach Elijah and renew him to his calling. This teaches us that even when we sin God can be directing events so as to teach us things that we need to know from our sins. It is not that God is ever responsible for our sin. But God is able to orchestrate things in such a way that we learn lessons from our sins.
