And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. (1 Kings 17:7)
We can’t always live by the bubbling brook. This is not fantasyland, remember; this is hard-core living. It means there’s recession and inflation facing us. Sometimes it even means unemployment. This is a time of testing our spiritual mettle. Nevertheless, we assume that when brooks dry up it’s because God is mad or we’ve done something wrong. But we must realize that all of us come to a moment when brooks dry up. Yet, this doesn’t mean that God doesn’t have unexpected surpluses elsewhere. When you learn to trust God in the tough times, God will be your surprising supplier.
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.
