God’s Provision is Already “There”
Lindsay Roberts – First of two parts
In 1 Kings 17 NKJV, the Lord told Elijah, “Get away from here and turn east- word, and hide by the brook Cherith … You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there” (v.2–4).
God said, “I have commanded the ravens to feed you.” Think about that for a minute. Elijah did as God commanded, and the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drink from the brook (v.6).
Elijah was sustained on the sustenance that God supernaturally and sovereignly sent there. But notice this: God had already sent provision to Cherith. If Elijah had not been obedient, the provision would have already been there, but he would have starved to death trying to find the right place because there was a famine in the land.
Elijah didn’t go to Cherith looking for food; he went in obedience to God. And when he got in the place of obedience, the food was waiting there.
When you reach the place of obedience, the provision is going to be waiting. You may go home and find something there that enables you to pay your bill supernaturally. You may find something there that you never dreamed possible because you came to the place of obedience.
Are you obeying God’s call on your life? Just get to the place God is calling you. Just go “there.” God can do the rest. He can send the provision!
