1 Kings 17:1-24 (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. (KJV)

Elijah told Ahab that there would be no rain nor dew for the next few years. However, God had made a provision for Elijah at Brook Cherith. Note, in verse 4B of our text, God said: ‘I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there’. Indeed, the Lord is wonderful, or how could you explain how the ravens (bird) supplied food to Elijah in both mornings and evenings. For example, ‘where do they get bread and meat; how did they know the timing and location?’

Similarly, one day, a pastor (J.T. Kalejaiye) wanted to wake up for 4am to attend a visa appointment. But, the previous night, he was tired and slept late. Do you know that when it was a few minutes to 4am, a mosquito began to sing to his ears? In an attempt to kill it, he hit himself and woke up at the exact time. It sounds funny, isn’t it? That’s how God works; He uses the foolish things to shock the wise! (1 Corinthians 1:27). No wonder, He made the feets of the 4 lepers to sound as a noise of chariots to scare off the Syrians (2 Kings 7:1-11).

Beloved, the summary of the matter is that you should never look down on anyone, a thing or even yourself and situation, because God can use ‘just anything’ to change your story. Oh! If Heaven could feed its prophet (Elijah), how much more we, God’s children? So, you’ll cry to God now, and your celebration shall begin, in Jesus’ name. Be Born Again!
