Summary: There are times in life when even though we are where God sent us that things go wrong. It’s often in these times that God is leading us to another place. We need to always remember that God has a plan for our provision where ever He may lead.

1 Kings 17:1-9 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.

2 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

3 Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.

5 So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.

6 And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.

7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land.

8 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

I want to call your Attention first of all to verse 7 today.....

7 And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up,......

It doesn’t matter WHO you are.....or What you do......

We all have times when THE BROOK DRIES UP in our lives....We all go through DRY SEASONS....

Times when it seems like NOTHING is WORKING for us like it’s supposed to.......

You may have been, like Elijah, Doing your best to follow the Command of God.....

You may Be RIGHT where God told you to be.....

or you may have just been Doing the Best you could do on your own.....

but EVERYONE faces Disappointments and Struggles in life.....

I know that most of you have heard me say over and over lately..... but.....I’m going to say it again....

What happens TO you is not Nearly as Important as WHAT YOU DO about what happens to you.

It’s been said that "Even though Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."

I want you to know that.....Even though bad things happen.......God has not left you alone

In the Darkest Moment of your life.....

If you will Listen......You will hear the Voice of God.....

He’ll be Calling you......or Directing You......

Maybe You’ll Remember something the Bible Says.....

Something from Sunday School Years ago maybe.....

Or Maybe you’ll have an Urging to Call someone who Always gives you the Word of God about your situation.......

But the Point is.... God hasn’t Left You ALONE.....

David said "Where shall I go from your Spirit?or where shall I flee from your presence?"Psalms 139:7-12

You may FEEL like you’re without God and without hope.....

but that’s just because We’ve just not been properly Taught about the Mercy of the Lord....

2 Peter 3:9 says that God is "....not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance."

God didn’t Design Failure....but He did Design a Plan for Every Time we do Fail.....

Jeremiah said in Lamentations 3:21-23

21 This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.

22 It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning:.......

We need to Understand like Jeremiah.....

God’s Mercy is the only reason We’re still here.....

Satan would have snuffed you out long ago if it were not for God’s Mercy.....

But thank God ....that....No Matter How Far Down in life we seem to get......

We can say like Micah 7:7 says.....I will look unto the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.

8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.

If we will Listen....Even when things seem the darkest....when there’s no hope in sight.....

God will speak to us....and the Entrance of His Word will Light our way.....

And so, Just Like Elijah did......

When the Brook Dries up......We need to Listen for the Word of the Lord.......

That’s the Very Next verse after the brook dried up....

1 Kings 17:8-9 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,

9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.

I want you to See....GOD HAS A PLAN to take care of you.......

With Every Temptation, Test and Trial.....God Makes a Way for you to Overcome......

Being a Christian doesn’t mean that Bad Things Don’t happen in your life.....

but it does mean that.........
