1 Kings 19:3-8, “Elijah is looking to retire.”

We need to ask the question at this point, as to whether we are free as Christians to walk out of the battle. Is a soldier allowed to leave his place in the ranks or on the field of battle? Shouldn’t he wait for his commanding officer to tell him where he is to serve next? Jezebel had badly frightened Elijah or burst his dreams of a nation under God! He felt that his burden was too heavy and his yoke too much for him to carry.
