God Will Provide – Beloved Women – April 3, 2020
READ: “So he went and did according to the word of the Lord. He went and lived by the brook Cherith that is east of the Jordan. And 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 17:5-6 ESV)
Many times, those who have been in church for a while, tend to skip past these sorts of things in the Bible. The talking animals, miraculous seas opening, and bread falling from the sky are difficult to imagine. We can become so accustomed to the stories that we forget the mere practical implications of the story. In this case, we see the prophet Elijah has birds act as his personal daily food delivery company. In my many years, one thing I can assure you is that most birds are not leaving meals at my front step!
Some can conclude that Elijah received “special treatment” since he was a prophet. However, we see God doing miracles such as this with the Israelites, who never quite did the right thing.
Here’s the truth…. The Lord will take care of His children by any means necessary.
Yet, when we find ourselves in a bind, we so easily forget these things. Today, I encourage you to seek the Lord for your needs. God desires for His children to never be in lack. If you have a need, never forget to ask the one who owns it all.
PRAY: God, I thank You for taking care of me. I appreciate You for ensuring I am always taken care of. When I find myself unsure, You always remind me that You are present. Lord, I ask that You continue to bless my home and give me eyes to see Your goodness. Thank You for being my provider. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
REFLECT: Do you ever doubt God’s ability to provide for you?
SHARE: The Lord will take care of His children by any means necessary.
