Easy To Believe:
When we have a deep faith in God, it is easier to believe that He is capable of doing the impossible.
Not too long ago we were in a park, and we watched as the raven would come by us and others that walked along the trail, waiting and looking for food. They are many people who love animals and were happy to feed this bird. God’s word tells us that He is the one who takes care of the ravens, and we do know that He will use people to get His work done.
Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Luke 12:24
It doesn’t seem like a difficult thing to do, to have people feed a raven, as people are alway feeding birds, so it seems quite easy that they would provide for the raven. This may not take much faith for someone to believe.
Called To Believe What We Deem Impossible:
Now we come to a place where we are called to believe the impossible. Instead of a person feeding the raven, we now have the raven delivering food to one of God’s prophets.
When we are in danger, we must have faith and believe that God will see us through. He is the God of the impossible, and He has the power to guide and lead us into places of safety.
Elijah Proclaims a Drought
17 And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at my word.”
2 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 3 “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 4 And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”
5 So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into 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 brook. 1Kings 17:1-6
