When the Brook Dries Up
1st Kings 17: 5-8

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ! Thank you so much for visiting our website! Here is an excerpt of my notes from Pastor A.J.’s sermon,  "WHEN THE BROOK DRIES UP”    We pray this Message will bless you the way it blessed us! Please come back again next week for more from “LaKesha’s Pen” with another inspiring message from our Pastor.  Yours in Christ,  LaKesha Johnson-Lewis

A life spent with God is an extraordinary life.  Speaking from experience there is never a dull moment.  God is always grooming you for better.  He is always interested in taking you to the next level; helping you grow in Him to be everything He has created you to be.  Where many people throw in the tile so to speak on God is in this fact; what makes you better sometimes doesn’t feel better. 

In 1st Kings 17:5-8, you read about Elijah.  Elijah was God’s prophet.  He spoke of things to come that God revealed to him.  In the beginning of chapter 17 God had revealed to Elijah that there would be a great drought.  After sharing this with Ahab God instructed Elijah to leave and go to Cherith.  The word Cherith means cutting or shredding; so God sent Elijah to the place of cutting.  At some point in your life you have been to your own Cherith.  You found yourself in a place where God was doing some cutting.  He allowed some people, some situations, and some difficulties to cut away at you.  Cherith is a place everyone finds themselves at some point.  This place can be lonely and you find yourself feeling isolated and all alone.  Understand this as long as you are spending your life with God and you are staying within God’s will God will always provide for you.  In fact He promises in His Word that He will never leave us, nor forsake us, no not ever!  (See Hebrews 13:5-6)  Circumstances never trump God’s provision.  God will get you away from what is distracting you because this is a time to learn and to grow closer to Him.  He is revealing Himself to you.  What you have to get your mind rapped around is this; God can take care of you even when it seems like He can’t!  Read the Full Sermon
