When the Brook dries up and the Ravens stop coming..

“Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You [Elijah] will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.” (1 Kings 17: 3 - 4).

Do you serve God with all your heart? Do you make His Kingdom and His righteousness your first priority? Then you should be comforted by what happened to the Prophet Elijah when he was on the run for his life from King Ahab and his wicked wife Jezebel.

"So he [Elijah] 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." (Verse 5 - 6).

Ravens brought Elijah food morning and evening. What happened when the brook dries up and the ravens stopped coming? God's care and provisions for Elijah did not cease. God upgraded the sources. This narrative is in the Scriptures to give the man of God deep trust in God’s providence and provisions.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; Do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, And he will show you which path to take." (Proverbs 3: 5 - 6).

As I enjoy divine provisions and providence in my ministry, my heart is warmed up by the experience of Elijah in the Brook and the Ravens narrative. God Never Fails!
