Ravenous But Satisfied
Those who entered Elijah's tent would have seen this picture dangling from the center pole.
It was a reminder of God's faithful provision by the brook Kerith and again, in the home of the widow and her son in Zeraphath.
What reminders do you have of God's marvellous intervention? How has Jehovah Jireh provided for you when it seemed that help could not be found? Some of my reminders are hymns or poems that our sovereign God gave me in times of desperate need.
This poem (which was given to me in two stages) continues to bring encouragement when I recall how God intersected with my life:
Our Great High Priest above,
In righteousness arrayed;
Presents our every need to God
Before we've even prayed!
Jehovah is His name,
Our needs He will provide;
His Word declared it to be true
And He has never lied.
Trust Him today in the midst of your seemingly impossible situation. "God will make a way when there seems to be NO way."
