FRIDAY, JUNE 10
7 And after a while the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land. 8 Then the word of the LORD came to him, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you.”
1 Kings 17:7-9 (ESV)
GOD PROVIDES THE PROMISES WE NEED
Two brothers were getting ready to boil some eggs. “I’ll give you a dollar if you let me break three of these on your head,” said the older one. “Promise?” asked the younger one. “Promise!” Happily, the older boy broke two eggs over his brother’s head. Standing stiff for fear the gooey mess would get all over him, the little boy asked, “When is the third egg coming?” “It’s not,” replied the brother. “That would cost me a dollar.”
Thankfully, God keeps His promises. Elijah had enough sense to know that when God told him something was going to happen, it would happen. God will never back away from a single promise He has made to His people. God promised Elijah that the ravens would feed him and they did. He is told that a widow woman in Zarephath has been commanded to sustain him! When Elijah went as the Lord commanded, he found out that the Lord was as good as His Word!
Who are the promise keepers in your life? What is a promise God has made in His Word that means a lot to you?
Praise God for being a promise keeper. Ask God to give you reassurance in any areas where you are feeling unsettled.
