Thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee.
~ 1 Kgs 17:4
God is never at a loss to find a way of providing for His children.
All things are His servants. The brooks of water, the birds of the air, the beasts of the field, the wings of ravens, the waves of the sea – all creatures, all things animate and inanimate – belong to Him and are ready to serve Him at His call.
Some people are troubled about miracles, asking how God can interrupt the regular order of nature to do any special favor for a child of His. If we understand how completely all things are under God’s hands, it will not be hard for us to believe that miracles are possible.
Perhaps none of us ever were fed by ravens as Elijah was, but in other ways, not less marvellous, God brings to us our daily bread. Railroad trains carry it across continents, or ships bear it around the globe to bring it to our doors. We are too wise in these days – too wise on scientific subjects – to get the most perfect peace from the promises of God.
