Summary: BECAUSE THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT YOU DON`T HAVE TO GO LOOKING FOR A CIRCUMSTANCE BECAUSE CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COME FIND YOU

1 Kings 17:1-7 (KJV)

1 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.

THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE PEOPLE OF GOD

VERY BRIEFLY IF I COULD GET A BAPTIST AMEN A METHODIST NOD AND A SANTIFIED CHURCH HALLEJUAH

I WANT TO REASON WITH ON THE THOUGHT

(HOW TO GET THROUGH OUR CIRCUMSTANCES )

MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS

LIFE IS FULL OF CIRCUMSTANCES

AND IF THE TRUTH BE TOLD

IT`S SOMEONE HERE THIS MORNING /EVENING

WHO IS EITHER GOING IN OR IN THE MIDIST OF A TRYING AND DIFFICULT TIMES

YOUR HAVING STRUGGLES AND HEARTACHES

THAT YOU THOUGHT YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH

AND IT SEEMS LIKE THINGS ARE NOT GOING TO GET ANY BETTER

BECAUSE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES

LOOKS UNSURMOUNTABLE AND IT SEEMS LIKE THEY ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE SOON

BUT I STOP BY ________________ THIS MORING/EVENING TO ENCOURAGE YOU

THAT WITH GOD WE CAN GET THROUGH OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

BECAUSE IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

ELIJAH REVEALS TO US HOW GOD BLESS HIM TO GET THROUGH HIS CIRCUMSTANCES

EVEN WHEN YOU GO TO THE BOOK OF JAMES

JAMES 5:17 SAYS THAT ELIJAH WAS A MAN OF LIKE PASSION AS WE ARE

AND JUST LIKE THE LORD WALK HIM THROUGH HIS CIRCUMSTANCES

HE IS STILL ABLE TO WALK US THROUGH OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

BECAUSE THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT YOU DON`T HAVE TO GO LOOKING FOR A CIRCUMSTANCE

BECAUSE CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COME FIND YOU

AIN`T IT AMAZING HOW CIRCUMSTANCES WILL RIDE DOWN YOUR STREET

BACK UP IN YOUR DRIVEWAY AND WALK RIGHT INTO YOUR HOUSE WITHOUT KNOCKING

YOU DON`T HAVE TO GO LOOKING FOR A CIRCUMSTANCE

BECAUSE CIRCUMSTANCES WILL COME FIND YOU

AND THEY HAVE AWAY OF SHOWING UP IN OUR LIVES UNINVITED

IN OTHER WORDS

IT SEEMS LIKE CIRCUMSTANCES KNOWS OUR CELL PHONE NUMBER

AS WELL OUR ADDRESS

AND IT`S NOTHING WE CAN DO TO DISGUISE OR HIDE OURSELVES FROM THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE

IT DON`T MATTER HOW MUCH WEAVE YOU PUT ON

IT MATTER HOW LONG OR SHORT YOU WEAR YOUR EYE LASHES

BROTHERS IT DOSE`NT MATTER HOW MANY TATTOO`S YOU MAY

IT`S NOTHING WE CAN DO TO HIDE OR DISGUISE OURSELVES

FROM THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF LIFE

AND OFTEN TIMES WHEN THEY SHOW UP

WE FIND OURSELVES FRUSTATED ----BITTER ---

AND IN A DESPARATE SITUATION

BECAUSE OF OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

-BUT WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD WE CAN MAKE IT THROUGH OUR CIRCUMSTANCES

**************************************

IN THE TEXT—IN THE TEXT BEFORE US

THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL ARE GUILTY OF IDOLTARY

THEY HAVE STRAYED AWAY FROM GOD

AND BOWED THERE KNEES TO AN IDOL GOD NAME BAAL

AHAB WHO WAS KING OF ISRAEL

MARRIED THE DAUGHTER OF ETH-BAAL WHOSE NAME WAS JEZEBEL

FOR JEZEBEL WAS A PROMOTER OF THE WORSHIP OF AN IDOL god NAME BAAL

BAAL WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A GOD OF FERTILITY

WHO WOULD BRING RAIN AND KEEP IT IN THE LAND

BUT GOD SHOWS ISRAEL IN THE TEXT

THAT SINCE THEY THINK THAT BAAL CAN KEEP RAIN IN THE LAND

THAT HE IS GOING TO SHUT OFF THE RAIN

AND THE TEXT REVEALS THAT GOD DID FOR 3 ½ YEARS

YOU SEE MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

IT WAS WHILE AHAB WAS SITTING ON THE THRONE ISRAEL

GOD SENT A PROPHET NAME ELIJAH

ELIJAH SHOWS UP AND PREACH A 25 WORD SERMON TO AHAB

FOR HE SAYS TO 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.

AND THEN TURN AND LEFT WITHOUT GIVING THE BENEDICTION

THEN THE LORD TOLD ELIJAH TO TURN EASTWARD

AND GO AND HIDE YOURSELF BY A BROOK CALLED CHERITH

JUST BEFORE THE JORDAN RIVER

AND THERE YOU WILL DRINK FROM THE BROOK

AND BECOME THE 1ST PARTICIPANT IN GOD`S MEAL ON WINGS PROGRAM

FOR I HAVE COMMANDED THE RAVENS

TO BRING YOU BREAD AND MEAT IN THE MORNING
