So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and lived by the Brook Cherith. (1 Kings 17:5 NASB)
Elijah had to faithfully wait on God. It takes a great caliber of character to go down into the cutting canyons alone with God. For us, as for Elijah, there has to be a Cherith before there can be a Carmel. There has to be a cross before there can be a crown. There has to be death to self-aggrandizement before there can spring up an irresistible new life of power with God. Stay where God sends you until you get a new assignment. What incredible power will come to your life when you learn the fine art of waiting.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
