Day 8 of Ten Days to Pentecost with Rev Sharon Wooten
Day Eight – Place of Provision
In 1 Kings 17 the Lord instructed the Prophet Elijah to go to the Brook Cherith. God sustained him at this brook during a time of famine. 1 Kings 17:4 teaches, “And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” This was God’s place of assignment on Elijah’s path for a season of time.
In verse 7 the Lord allowed the brook to dry up. Elijah had to move to a new location because his next place of assignment was linked with God’s provision. God’s place of provision is God’s place of assignment.
Ask the Lord for your next place of provision in the coming days. Are you living by a brook that has dried up? God will allow your brook to dry up so He can bring you into a new place of provision.
God instructed Elijah to go to the house of a widow in Zarephath. This new assignment not only provided for Elijah, but also resulted in miraculous provision and the salvation for this widow and her son. God is drying up your brook because there are people who need what He has placed down inside you.
Ask the Lord to help you to discern the end of a season and the beginning of a new season. Ask Him to show you when your brook is drying up and how to find your next place of assignment.
