This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Luke 12:24 (NIV)
Today I am thinking about how God won’t lead you where He won’t feed you.
Sometimes we can be so overcome with fear that we can’t take that next step because we can’t see around the proverbial corner. Yet today, let us be warmly reminded that God is our provider.
When I turn to the Scriptures, I think about the story of the prophet Elijah and the widow. In the story, Elijah asked the widow for bread, and her response was centered around a fear of lack. The widow told him that she only had enough to prepare a last meal for her son and herself, and then she planned to die.
Let’s contrast her approach with Elijah’s. When Elijah started out on his assignment from God, there was a severe drought going on. The Lord told Elijah to go to the Kerith Brook, and he would drink from there. Yet sometime thereafter, the brook dried up.
Elijah’s response wasn’t to ask God how He could send him to a brook that would dry up, nor was his response like the widow’s. He didn’t just take one last sip from the brook and resign himself to death.
Instead of questioning God, Elijah trusted God. He kept his faith that God would not lead him to a place where He would not feed him. Before Elijah could even ask for help, God was leading him to the next part of his journey where, of course, he would be fed.
If you are worrying about your own provisions today, hold onto these words: “Consider the ravens: they neither sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable are you than birds!” Luke 12:24 (NIV)
