Public and Private

Public and Private

Elijah’s public ministry began with warning King Ahab about a coming, prolonged drought. Hardly the message one wants to bring to a person in power. Immediately afterward came the LORD’s word of provision and protection for Elijah. Elijah trusted and obeyed God’s direction in his public leadership role as well as in his private life. God calls us to do the same.

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.” 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 17:2-6

Prayer: Lord, let me trust and obey You in my public roles and private life. In Jesus’ name, amen.
