What difference did the time Elijah spent beside the brook make in his life? Can you imagine relying on God to the extent that he did? The ravens God sent fed on whatever they could find. Elijah had to trust that these unclean, carrion-eating birds would bring him food fit to eat. And they did. He had to trust that the brook would continue to provide drinkable water during the drought he had just prophesied. The time undoubtedly further increased Elijah’s trust and reliance on God’s faithfulness and trustworthiness throughout his ministry.
So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. 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
Prayer: Lord, grow my trust and reliance on You in every circumstance. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
