Hide Yourself

Day 190, 07/17/2010, Hide Yourself, I Kings 17:1-6
17 Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbeq in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word." 2 The word of the LORD came to him, saying, 3 "Go from here and turn eastward, and hide yourself by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. 4 You shall drink from the wadi, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there." 5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD ; he went and lived by the Wadi Cherith, which is east of 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 wadi. NRSV
Have you ever felt hidden, and that no one cared enough to reach out to you? How would you react if God said hide yourself and then had ravens deliver you food? Wow! Talk about God going the extra mile to care for you…
God knows what we need, when we need it and how He plan s on getting it to us.
