Featured Passage: 1 Kings 17:1-7 (CSB)
17 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from the Gilead settlers, said to Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel lives, in whose presence I stand, there will be no dew or rain during these years except by my command!”
2 Then the word of the Lord came to him: 3 “Leave here, turn eastward, and hide at the Wadi Cherith where it enters the Jordan. 4 You are to drink from the wadi. I have commanded the ravens to provide for you there.”
5 So he proceeded to do what the Lord commanded. Elijah left and lived at the Wadi Cherith where it enters the Jordan. 6 The ravens kept bringing him bread and meat in the morning and in the evening, and he would drink from the wadi. 7 After a while, the wadi dried up because there had been no rain in the land.
Sometimes God asks us to do something big! This happened to Elijah who was called out to declare to Israel that God was judging them for their worship of a false God named Baal. We learn in this message the importance of following God by doing the big things he tells us to do, and at the same time, we see God’s power and mercy in walking through these tasks with us and then providing for us afterward, just like in this story about Elijah.
