Title - Comforting Words for the weary soul

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- 1Kings 19: 1-4

Bible Passages:- Isaiah 3:10, Deuteronomy 31:6, 1Tim 4:1, Zechariah 2:8

There are issues in peoples life today irrespective of your status
Sometimes, even the children of God deem it necessary to take steps out of God's purpose for their lives
Take Elijah as a sample 1kings 19:1-4
After slaying the prophets of Baal, Jezebel threatened to take his life and he fled
Remember Elijah is a man of God that called fire from heaven to consume his enemies
Instead of crying out to God this time, he fled from Jezebel
Are you Weary ? God has comforting words for your soul

Things that could cause one's soul to be weary

1. Issues of Life
e.g the woman with the issue of blood had this issue for 12 years
Luke 8: 43-48

2) Prophetic Utterance
The Love of many for God will wax cold
So many Christians do not even feel the necessity to spend time with God (the lover of our soul)
We would rather spend time on T.V 1Tim 4.1

3)An attempt from the pit of hell to paint God black

In order to resolve the issues of life:

1). see God as a God bigger than your problems

2)Think of God's goodness

3) God has declared you are the apple of his eyes
Hence see yourself as God sees you. Zec 2:8

4) Remember God has declared, it shall be well with thee. Is 3:10

5)Take note of the fact that God did not disappoint the people of old.
So why should he disappoint you ?
If He did it before, He will do it again.
