God Never Dries Up
Sometimes it may feel as if your well of blessings has run dry. Where there was once a flow, there now appears dryness. Where there once was abundance, there now appears lack.
It's important for you to know that provisions may come and go, but God never dries up! In God, there is constant overflow—living water and nourishment that continually bubbles over. Your circumstances may change, but God's provision does not.
In the Book of 1 Kings 17, God declares through the prophet Elijah that no rain will fall in the land for a period of three years.
Elijah had to deliver this message to King Ahab who God knew would seek to kill the messenger. So God made a miraculous provision for Elijah by a brook and made sure he was well fed and taken care of.
After a period of time, the brook dried up.
Then God told Elijah to rise up and get moving, because He had another mission to fulfill. At that point Elijah had several choices: He could get moving like the Lord asked him to or he could lament that his miracle had dried up.
Elijah took the first option and went on to a life of even greater miracles.
It's true that a provision, or a ministry, or a miracle may dry up. In fact, God may decide to move on. The key is to keep your eyes on God.
Everything or everyone you trust in may dry up, but God never does. His love, care and provision is evergreen.
If you're feeling dry or that God isn't there, He may not be …
I mean He may be not at the last place you encountered Him. He may have moved on, and is asking you to join Him in a new place of blessing.
"See, I will do a new thing. It will begin happening now. Will you not know about it? I will even make a road in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert." Isaiah 43:19
