One question has signed a lease agreement in our minds: “What are we going to do?” Secular and spiritual leaders tell us that things will improve, but what if our economy doesn’t rebound immediately. What if more people (you included) lose their jobs, homes, health, or investments? If these questions have terrorized you lately, then let me reassure you: GOD WILL SUPPLY! He may not come when we want Him, but He’ll be there right on time!
Elijah reminded me that God will take care of His people, even in the worst economy. Elijah lived in a pitiful economy – the Lord allowed a drought so sever that it caused a famine. Although conditions were horrible around him, Elijah was unaffected. The Lord treated him like His sheep, and He led him to green pastures and still waters. Throughout the drought, Elijah received meals on wings, for ravens brought him food day and night. Truly, God will take care of His people.
We must always remember that God cannot lie; whatever He says must happen. Through David, He said, “Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever. They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough” (Psalm 37:18-19, New Living Translation). Elijah is a witness of God’s providence, and since you’re a child of the King, you will be, too! Be still, and remember that GOD WILL SUPPLY!
Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread (Psalm 37:25, New Living Translation)
