Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.” So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook. (1 Kings 17:2-6)
Because of the wickedness of Israel, God sent a three-year drought to the land through His prophet Elijah. In a time of drought and desperation, the Lord took care of Elijah, leading Him to a place of provision. He told Elijah where he could find water, and He sent ravens to feed him morning and evening. Elijah didn’t even have to look for his food! God brought it right to him.
God will always be faithful to provide for your every need. All you have to do is believe Him and obey His word. You can trust Him to take good care of you. Provision isn’t just what God does; it’s part of who He is. As the ultimate Provider, your Father will not leave you empty or lacking. Whether through miracles, through nature, or through the labor of your hands, He WILL come through for you, every time. Just listen to what the Spirit is saying to you. The Lord is your shepherd, and you will want for nothing. Let your Dad do his job and provide for you. You don’t have to strive to make ends meet. You do your part, and He’ll do His, without exception.Like what you've read? Receive free email updates from The Voice Online: Subscribe
