When Your Brook Dries Up

“When Your Brook Dries Up”
July 13, 2011

I love hearing message about struggles, trials, and tribulations because I know there isn’t one person who hasn’t faced “living in a drought” so to speak.  Although at times it takes a great amount of effort, I thank God when I’m going through a hard time because I know no matter the outcome, it will only bring me closer to Him.  Often times, He is trying to speaking to us. 

Elijah Proclaims a Drought (1 Kings 17:1-20 NKJV)

 1 And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”
2 Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, 3 “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 4 And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”
5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. 7 And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

Keep your ears open to hear God during your dry season, because this is when God speaks.  Even through your dry season He is still providing for you and wherever God sends you, He provides for you. (vs. 2, 4, 6)

If the brook had not dried up, we would not feel the need to grow, we would get so comfortable to the point of not serving, giving, or praising Him. 

Something to think about:  Ask yourself one question, how long will you stay in your dry place?  The next time your “living through a drought” when your brook runs dry, be sure to allow God to use those moments to bring us where He wants us to be.  God Bless Blog Readers!!!
