Elijah’s Destiny was to stand on Mount Carmel, call down fire from heaven, and deliver Israel from idolatry. But he could only get there one step at a me. That’s how God works. First God sent him to a brook at Cherith (which means “covenant”). At some point in your spiritual journey you must discover that God is a covenant –making, covenant keeping God. He miraculously dried up the Jordan River, made an axe-head float, and caused fish to swim into an empty net-proving that when He makes a promise He keeps it. When God sent Elijah to cherith, He told him, “I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there” (1 Kings 17:4 KJV). Had Elijah gone elsewhere, God wouldn’t have met his needs. Why? Because a covenant is two-sided; when you do your part, God does His. Next, God sent Elijah to Zarephath, saying, “There I commanded a widow… to sustain thee” (v9 KJV). Think about it. God used a flesh-eang bird and a penniless widow to feed Elijah, so stop trying to second-guest Him! The Bible says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.” So here’s the queson. If you truly believe that Scripture, why are you complaining, worrying and trying to figure everything out instead of trusng Him? Zarephath “means” a crucible,” a place where metal is refined. If you’re going through a fiery trial today, rejoice – God’s separang the gold from the impuries in your character, you’ve passed the test at Cherith and Zarephath, you’ll be ready for the blessing of Mount Carmel.
