Good Morning Beloved Children Of God!!!
Hope everyone is having a blessed day, even though things may not be going as we thought it would God is still in control and always has the last say. I just wanted to talk about Abraham for a little bit and than share a little about Elijah.
Abraham was not a perfect man however, the overall direction of his life was towards God, we will not always walk perfectly in our Christian life either, but we should remember that just as God was with Abraham even when he struggled, God loves us and will gladly forgive us if we fail. Abraham as a model of a faithful life, a life that believes the truths of God and lives out those truths in day to day living. This is the kind of faith we should seek to duplicate and with help of the Holy Spirit, we are able!
Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4) Give yourself to Jesus and He will give Himself to you.
God sent Elijah to hide out while he was waiting for the drought to be noticed by Ahab. God gave very unusual instructions to Elijah, The Lord came to Elijah and said, “Leave this place, go east and hide in the Kerith Valley. It is east of the Jordan River. You will drink water from the brook, I have ordered some ravens to feed you there. So Elijah did what the Lord had told him to do. He went to the Kerith Valley. It was east of the Jordan River. He stayed there. The Ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning. They also brought him bread and meat in the evening, he drank water from the brook. 91 Kings 17:2-6). God took care of Elijah in this time, God provided for Him, even the birds obey God. Than God told him it is time to go to Zarephath. So Elijah went and he came to the town gate, where there he saw a widow gathering sticks, he called out to her and asked her would you bring me a little water in a jar, I need a drink? She went to get the water, Then he called out to her again asking her to please bring me a piece of bread too. She replied and said, ” I don’t have any bread she replied. And that’s just as sure as the Lord your God is alive. All I have is a small amount of flour in a jar and a little olive oil in a jug. I’m gathering a few sticks to take home. I’ll make one last meal for myself and my son. we’ll eat it. After that we will die. Elijah said to her, “The Lord is the God of Israel! He says, ” The jar of flour will not be used up, the jug will always have oil in it. You will have flour and oil until the day the Lord sends rain on the land. (1 Kings 17:8) Elijah promised her that if she would do what he said, God would provide the flour and oil she needed until he ended the drought and food was plentiful again, Elijah was asking her to TRUST the LORD OF ISRAEL.
She went away and did what Elijah had told her to do. So Elijah had food everyday. There was also food for the woman and her family. The jar of flour wasn’t used up. The jug always had oil in it. That’s what the Lord had said would happen. He had spoken that message through Elijah (1 Kings 17:15-16) The woman never did run out, soon after her son was dying, Elijah took the boy up to his room, he cried out to God on the woman’s behalf. He stretched out over the boy, he said, “LORD my GOD, give this boy’s life back to him!” The Lord answered Elijah’s prayer, He gave the boy’s life back to him. So the boy lived. Elijah picked up the boy, he carried the boy down from the upstairs room into the house and gave him to his mother. He said, “LOOK! Your Son Is Alive!” Then the woman said to Elijah, “Now I know that you are a man of God, I know that the message you have brought from the Lord is TRUE! (1 Kings 17:21) God allowed this trial so that she could see the power of the one true God. She had to understand that Elijah was God’s prophet so she would believe his message that only God is worthy of worship. Elijah abided with God and obeyed Him every step of the way. Elijah went boldly, he did not doubt God or did he hesitate to go to Sidon, even though it was full of his enemies. The widow trusted God enough to give her last bit of bread to Elijah, when God promised to provide.
God ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES! GOD TOOK CARE OF ELIJAH’S NEEDS. HE FED THE WIDOW AND HER SON AND EVEN SAVED HER SON’S LIFE BY BRINGING HIM BACK TO LIFE, HE IS OUR RESQUEER. Brother’s and Sister’s there is NO safer place to be than wherever God wants you to be. Abide in Him, remain with Him, hear His voice, and obey His instructions. God will never send you into a place where He doesn’t go with you, and He will provide all that you need, in ABUDANCE! GOD PROVIDES FOR THOSE WHO TRUST IN HIM.
