A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
1 Kings 17:7
“And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.”
We are to walk by faith in our Christian walk and the following is an example:
“That is the way this world's brooks always do. For a time they flow full; then they begin to waste away, and at last dry up altogether. This is true of all earthly joys. There is a comfort, however, in what comes after the statement made in these words. When the brook dried up, God had another place ready for his servant. "Arise, and go to Zarephath." There he found other help ready. The lesson is, that we are never to doubt God, no matter how low the supply gets. Though we have come down to the last mouthful of bread—and the last cupful of water, and still see no new provision beyond, we are to take the last morsel with thankfulness, believing that God will have something else ready in time. It will be soon enough if it is ready when we have eaten the last crust!”Do you walk by faith?What a great blessing to see what God can provide when we have a great need.
If you really want God’s blessings—walk by faith
