Bible Highlights: 1 Kings 18-20

1 Kings 19:4
"He went a day's journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a broom tree, and he asked that he might die. He said: "It is enough! O Jehovah take my life away, for I am no better than my forefathers." 

Elijah, at 1 Kings 19:4, had been traveling in the wilderness all day alone with his thoughts and he started feeling like a failure. The problem was he was judging himself on his own standards, not God's standards. Sometimes when we are alone we can start thinking of all of the things we've done wrong. But a negative viewpoint can be deceptive. We've probably done more right than we realize. It's Jehovah's opinion that really matters, and he values our faithfulness not our accomplishments.
