Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.” The word of the LORD came to him, saying, “Go from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. You shall drink from the wadi, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” So he went and did according to the word of the LORD; he went and lived by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the wadi. (1 Kings 17:1-6, NRSV)
Have I said it enough this week, God will provide.
I really feel like a broken record, and like the boy who cried wolf.
How many different passages in a row can we look at that show God provides.
But I bet this is not a story most of us know.
Elijah was told by God to proclaim rain nor dew would be present in the land for years. And then he is told by God to go east and hide near Wadi. and there you shall find drink and the ravens will bring you food.
You see when God wants to do something He will stop at nothing to make it happen. He will even have the ravens feed you!
So trust that God will provide!
