“And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook. And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the landĒ 1 Kings 17:6-7, NKJV.
The brook symbolizes a place of Godís supernatural provision, favor, and blessings. The brook is great when we’re where He wants us to be, His favor is pouring and blessings are overflowing thereÖuntil it drys up.
Some of us may be experiencing a dried-up brook. It is a hard truth when you realize your hardship isnít due to an attack of the devil, but itís because youíve been somewhere too long. The Lord tells you He has something else for you, but we remained at the brook.
You could have stayed at a job, a business, be at a ministry, lived in a city, or involved in something that has dried up. You ask why isnít it like it use to be. Godís grace to be there isnít there any longer. Something has changed. You donít understand, but the Lord has put something new for you on your heart.
The more you remain there, the less of God you will experience there. Itís time to move forward into Godís plan for your life. When He shifts, have the trust and courage to move with Him.
Prayer: Father, has my brook dried up? Is it time to go on to what You have next for me? Help me to see this season in my life the way You see it and show me what to do or where to go. I also ask for the faith and courage to obey You, no matter where my next brook is. In Jesusí name, Amen.
