Hi Austin – I appreciate your insight on the passage in I Kings 19. It is a humbling reminder of our brokenness and need of God’s help in the midst of physical suffering. I think living in a modern world with hundreds of ways to dull our pain (medically and otherwise) we have such a weakness to let physical suffering tempt us to sin. We are not used to suffering, and while modern medicine is a gift and we shouldn’t seek out suffering unnecessarily, Satan could certainly use physical weakness to tempt us. But as God demonstrates in the passage, His grace is sufficient for our weaknesses.
