When God Brings You To It

on August 28, 2017



I Kings 17:2-4  “Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah:  “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.”


I was talking with a friend about a move to another state that she believes God is calling her to make. She will be living in a community of people who, for the most part, do not speak English.

When I remarked that a move there could be a problem since she does not know how to speak any foreign languages, she quoted a familiar saying. “When God brings you to it, He will see you through it.”

She is right. God will take care of us when we follow His leading. I love this verse from I Kings because it gives such a beautiful picture of birds, sent by God, to feed Elijah as he sits by a crystal babbling brook. I imagine the peace he feels as God’s promise comes to pass.

We all have heard of people whose needs—financial and otherwise—have been more than adequately supplied by God. They may have not been fed by a raven, but perhaps God urged a friend to supply a meal, cut someone’s lawn when they were recuperating from surgery, or write a check to cover an electric bill.

Maybe you, yourself, have given money to a homeless person or missionary at God’s leading, then experienced the joy of an unexpected check in the mail for the exact amount you need to pay your mortgage payment!

Whatever the call God makes on your life, it is such a blessing to be used to fulfill His purposes.

His Word tells us that He will supply all of our needs according to His riches in Glory.
