1 Kings 17

 

It was a dark day and Israel (the northern kingdom) was under the leadership of King Ahab.  But in the darkness God sent forth light!  This light would be the prophet Elijah.  In 1 Kings 17 Elijah would declare, because of the wickedness in Israel, that "there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to Elijahs word."

 

These are dark times in America but God has sent light.  His Son, the Word of God, that men may be delivered from darkness.  By the Bold Preaching, men shall hear the truth and THIS truth shall make men free!

 

We find God's provision for this Godly man.  God will provide for those who serve without thought of self.  "The Word of the Lord came unto him saying," if only we would listen, for indeed God still speaks to his servants!

 

"Get thee hence" not only provision but also protection.  God commands, Elijah to "hide thyself" and to hide at a certain Place!  God knows exactly where we are!  He knows how to get us to this place of provision and protection!

 

"And it shall be" the Lord is that living water and we shall drink as God demands and directs!  "So he (Elijah) went and did according to the Word of the Lord."  Elijah was willing to follow Gods commands!

 

We must be willing!  We must be yielded!  We must do according to God's Word!  It may be a lonely place or a solitary place but if thats where God directs it will be where God provides!

 

What a surprise, God sent bread and flesh in the morning and the evening!  Does it surprise you that God sends bread and flesh?  He used ravens in Elijah's life.  What is He using in ours?

 

In verse 7 we read "and it came to pass after awhile."  It is never surprising that God says what He means and means what He says!!

 

What has God been trying to tell you?  Don't you know God will provide for you?  He will protect you?  He has a place just for you?

 

He softly and tenderly calls for you.  Will you listen?  Come while He speaks.

 

Father, I thank you for your love.  Help your people, meet their every need! Amen.

 

God Bless
