God cares for you...
Here is God's prophet...
He is worn out by the death sentence he has been under for 3 years.
He is worn out emotionally.
He is worn out spiritually by the confrontation with the king, the people of Israel and the prophets of Baal and Ashterah.
He is worn out physically. It says he killed all 850 prophets. If he himself chopped off each of their heads, he was worn out doing that.
Then he ran for 20 miles. Then he fled for several days.
Now he is lonely and alone.
5 "Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree. But as he was sleeping, an angel touched him and told him, “Get up and eat!” 6 He looked around and there beside his head was some bread baked on hot stones and a jar of water! So he ate and drank and lay down again.
7 Then the angel of the Lord came again and touched him and said, “Get up and eat some more, or the journey ahead will be too much for you.”
8 So he got up and ate and drank, and the food gave him enough strength to travel forty days and forty nights to Mount Sinai,[g] the mountain of God. 9 There he came to a cave, where he spent the night."
God met him in his weakest hour.
In his greatest need.
In his worst moment.
God met him there...
