    Therefore you are without excuse, O man, whoever you are who judge. For in that which you judge another, you condemn yourself. For you who judge practice the same things.

When The Brook Dries Up

  • So he went and did according to Yahweh's word; for he went and lived by the brook Cherith that is before the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. After a while, the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land. Yahweh's word came to him, saying, 'Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and stay there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to sustain you.' 1 Kings 17:5 WEB

    Each day Elijah watched the flow of water in the brook Cherith get smaller. God had told him to come here, and He had supernaturally taken care of his needs, but now this brook was drying up and God was not saying anything. Only after the brook had dried up did the word of the Lord come to Elijah, and He learned about the next place. Elijah did not know what was coming, or where he was going until then. He was like a soldier waiting on orders to come down the chain of command.

    Once the Lord put me in my own computer business. It was not planned; He pushed me into it through desperation and some very humbling circumstances. It prospered and was anointed for years. The Lord and I worked together as partners every day. Some days it was mostly ministry.

    There were divine appointments and I never knew what the next day held. At times the Lord would send us there to minister to the people. The computers would suddenly fix themselves when we walked into the building, but then we would end up anointing the manager with oil and praying for them and their family. The Holy Spirit would descend on them right there in the office and everyone would begin to weep.

    I was totally following the Holy Spirit one day at a time, but then it began to dry up, and He became silent. Finally after months without work or hearing Him, I was on the verge of breaking down, giving up, throwing in the towel, and bankruptcy. That was the week that He spoke and took us to the next level. He pushed us into full time ministry using the skills that we had learned along the way. It was I who was panicking, but one word from Him changed everything.

    Don't panic when the brook starts to dry up. For when it has gone, the Lord will reveal the next step that you are to take. The time of silence will end. The time of lack will be over. The blessings will return. When God begins to promote you, He will often close out the old, before He opens the new.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please let me see the situation through Your eyes and to focus on the bigger picture. Send us the Comforter for we want more of You in our lives. Help us make the right decisions, and to be in the right place, at the right time, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Thank you for this devotion today. I know this to be true in my life as well. We are to stay in prayer always and keep reading God's word daily. God will speak to us and tell us the next step but we have to step out in faith and take the first step. God goes before us to set up everything for us and he stands behind us to watch and protect us from harm. These things help me stay strong when doubts arise or when the Lord tells us it is time to move on or start something new. Happy Mothers Day to all the Mothers in this group!!
