God never leaves us

Elijah had had victories. He had seen God's great power demonstrated on several significant occasions.

But Elijah was tired and discouraged. Jezebel threatened his life, and he had gone into hiding in the wilderness. Although he was aware of the good he had accomplished through his reliance on God, it seemed that the stronger the stand he took for truth, the more he was persecuted for it. It looked as though the truth he loved was hated. Not only that; he seemed to be so outnumbered. In fact, he believed that he was the sole remaining prophet who had been faithful to God and had not worshiped Baal.

The Bible records, "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." I Kings 19:4.
