“This is enough, O LORD!”

1 Kings 19:4

How many times have we found ourselves saying this to God, over and over and over again; "Enough, Lord…I can't take it anymore!" We often feel as if we are in a barren desert not finding our way, disgusted with God. It seems as if Elijah did the same thing. This great warrior of God who ran into the desert, out of fear, forsaking all that he knew and understood, found solace under a Broom Tree. A bush in the middle of a barren land that requires little care to flourish, that provides protection and rest. Today your protection and rest lies in something much greater than a Broom Tree… it is the outstretched arms of Jesus Christ. His roots are deep and everlasting, we only need take solace in Him, and He will give us rest this day.
