1 Kings 19:13
Elijah was in the cave for a personal time with God, but when God showed up he wrapped his face in the mantle. When God calls us to Himself we must take off the mantle and let God deal with our hearts on a personal level. God wants to fellowship with us, not our ministry cares and frustrations. “Let me hear your voice, let me see your face.” To worship God in spirit requires a transparency before Him on a level that transcends our function in ministry. Elijah failed on this point. We see his next assignment is to find his replacement.
