When The River Runs Dry | When You Run Dry
Have you ever felt like God led you somewhere only to be disappointed by how things turned out once you got there? Why does the God who makes the rains fall and the rivers flow…sometimes let those same rivers run dry? Join us as we learn how - and why - to trust God even when our circumstances aren’t what we expected.

Mission Hills is a church family—a family who wants to extend to you the same love, hope, and joy that we have received. We know that we cannot be all things to all people. But we do want to be one thing to all people. We want to be the place where anyone, of any age, of any level of spiritual maturity, of any economic class, of any ethnicity, of any church background—or no church background—can meet God in a way that transforms their life…forever!

If you are a first time guest, we would love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center for a free gift.
Elijah was afraid and ran for his life. (1Ki 19:3a)
Mistake #1 - He let his problem determine his perspective.
Is there a place in your life where you're letting a problem determine your perspective?
When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there while he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness. (1 Kings 19:3b-4a)
Mistake #2 - He wore out his body.
Mistake #3 - He shut out God's people.
He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, LORD,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.” (1 Kings 19:4b)
Then he lay down under the bush and fell asleep. All at once an angel touched him and said, “Get up and eat.” He looked around, and there by his head was some bread baked over hot coals, and a jar of water. He ate and drank and then lay down again. The angel of the LORD came back a second time and touched him and said, “Get up and eat, for the journey is too much for you.” (1Kings 19:5-7)
When the river in you is running dry, get some good sleep and some good food.
Is there a physical component to your spiritual struggle?
Mistake #4 - He spent his God-given strength on things God never intended it for.
What would an energy eval reveal about how you're using the strength God has given you?
The LORD said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the LORD, for the LORD is about to pass by.” (1 Kings 19:11a)
Instead of offering a solution to his problems, God offered His presence.
Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake.
What we need most isn’t the presence of God’s power but the power of God’s presence.
Which of these mistakes is keeping you from experiencing God's presence?

1. Letting a problem determine you perspective.
2. Wearing out you body.
3. Shutting out Gods' people.
4. Spending your God-given strength on things God never intended it for.
