Our sermon this morning was based on 1 Kings 16:29-17:6.
Elijah, whose name means "Yahweh is my God," confronts King Ahab and his evil ways, warning him that a severe drought will come over the land. That drought ends up lasting for three and a half years. Can you imagine?
God sends Elijah off to Kerith, where he can drink from the stream and the ravens bring him food. God often calls his servants away for a time of listening and learning, a time of being still and knowing He is God.
In this time of solitude, Elijah learns to trust and obey God's word, to trust in God's complete provision, and to trust nothing is impossible with God.
