What Did You Learn, Yesterday?
Many of us had an opportunity to go to church yesterday. Some might have attended Sunday School, too
Due to situations, some could not attend a service during the weekend, but might have been able to listen to a service using the radio, TV, or Internet.
Whether you had a chance to attend, listen, or reflect, what have you learned about God, recently?
I will start....
Here is the scene: Elijah is camped by a brook that is shrinking over time. A raven visits him twice day, bringing Elijah bread and meat. One day he wakes and finds the ground dry where the brook once was. He doesn't whine. Cry out. Accuse God of only taking care of him for a short time. He waits.
The wait doesn't last long. God speaks to him, saying, "Go at once" and include directions where to go and what to do. Elijah didn't question the directions. The Bible says, "So he went."
Plain and simple.
Just like that.
The man is hunted by Ahab's soldiers.
The land has little to no water.
A famine is in full swing.
And God asks him to seek out a widow for help, a starving widow who has a son.
Not only did he receive the food he needed, but also his immediate response saved the starving widow and her son.
And now it is your turn. What did you learn?
