Satisfaction Is Guaranteed

1 Kings 17:7-8 (NKJV)
And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying,
Emphasis Mine

It was after the brook dried up that another word came to Elijah. Prior to this when the Word of the Lord came to Elijah, the ravens brought him bread and meat every morning and evening and he drank water from the brook. Amen!

God is interested in the satisfaction of His children. He wants to meet your needs to a place where nothing is missing and nothing is broken either. He wants you satisfied. One of the reasons why He transitions you from one season to another is so that you are strategically positioned to get all your needs met. I can guarantee you that we are one Word away from getting our needs met. If we will just yield to Him and be vigilant to hear from Him when he speaks, we would not go to Him in prayers with a very long list of requests. Some of the requests can be handled by simple obedience to a word we received from Him. Can you imagine what would have become of Elijah if he did not receive another word from the Lord? He would have had enough to eat and nothing to drink. Sooner or later the thirst will supersede the hunger and the food which was meant to be a blessing will no longer be regarded as a blessing. Amen!

It is imperative to allow the Word of God to lead you into the next season of your life otherwise blessings may appear burdensome and of less value, because we prefer something over another not because what we have is not good but rather not relevant for the moment.

God will not just let you eat and not drink in the process. He desires to see you satisfied. Your satisfaction is His interest.

Another point worth noting here is that we ought to trust God when He speaks to us, just like Elijah did. When the word leads the seasons of your life, you will not suffer any form of deficiency. Do not fear to move on with God with the mindset that you might miss out. Let me encourage you “no one misses out on anything when they depend on God solely”. It will be mockery of His character as a faithful Father to think that he will not bring every good thing to you. When Elijah went to Zarephath, his needs were still met, this time, through another avenue. Amen!

Supernatural Provisions Are Guaranteed

Elijah had declared a drought over the land.

1 Kings 17:2-3 (NKJV)
Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying,  “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan.  And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”

It is noteworthy that when the drought was declared over the land, Elijah did not have secondary plans for his wellbeing (where to stay or what to eat or drink). It took the word from the Lord to Elijah in order to transition from where he was into his supernatural provisions.
Elijah was able to drink from the brook and eat what the ravens brought to him. Vs 4 and vs 6.
This was supernatural provision.

When the brook dried up (Elijah’s assigned source of water), it took another word from God in order to transition into another source of supernatural provision. This time around, the instructions were different compared to the first.

1 Kings 17:8-9 (NKJV)
Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying,  “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.”

Although the drought was ongoing, Elijah’s needs were still being met through this widow as God had instructed him. Amen!

Are you trusting God for provisions or supernatural provisions? Could it be that your provisions or supernatural provisions are wrapped up in one instruction from the word? Could it be that your disobedience to His word is the reason why you are not experiencing increase? This is not meant to make you feel condemned, however, to encourage you to do a self-inquiry and make the necessary adjustments. Your provisions and supernatural provisions are wrapped up in the word. Choose God’s word today. Amen!
