SUMMARY: In 1 Kings 19, Elijah is filled with fear and asks God to take his life. God sends an angel to feed him and strengthen him, and then tells him to go to the mountain. There, God reveals himself through a great wind, earthquake, and fire, but then comes as a small and delicate whisper. God tells Elijah that he has everything under control and to trust him. The author shares a personal experience of asking God for a butterfly to come and sit on the table with him, and while it didn't happen, he has since seen the butterflies regularly in his life. The author emphasizes the importance of recognizing God's presence in the small and seemingly insignificant moments of life.

And they were looking everywhere for Elijah's head. Elijah, scared of fear, ran away, left, then says:
