I Kings 17:4 (GNT) You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there”.
The prophet Elijah pronounced a drought upon the land because of the sin of Ahab and the nation of Israel. There was only one problem. Elijah had to live in the same land as Ahab.
God provided for Elijah in a supernatural way. The ravens brought bread in the morning and meat in the evening. His water came from the brook. (Be sure to read I Kings 17:1-4).
God often uses money to confirm direction for our lives. Many times God uses a lack of provision to move us into new directions. It is a catalyst to encourage new ideas and strategies. Many times a loss of job becomes the greatest blessing to our lives because it provides the catalyst to do things we simply would never do without taking the step to get out of our comfort zone.
Sisters and brothers, if you are fully following the Lord in your life and seeking direction from Him and you have no un-confessed sin in your life, there is no way the Lord will allow you to miss His provision for you.
Point to ponder- The Lord has a thousand ways to get the provision you need at the time you need it. Provision follows obedience. You don’t have to worry about the lack of resources in your life, the Lord is the source of all you need! Have a great day.
