My Daily Devotional


God’s Plan For You

“Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there.”
1st Kings 17:3-4

God had just told Elijah that there would be a drought for several years in the land, and to go to a place where he would not have to contend with it. How easily Elijah could have said, “Lord, I really don’t want to be in this place and depend on the ravens to feed me, I would rather stay where I am with my family.” But Elijah trusted God and went where God told him to go. God was preparing Elijah for the future, as not long after this Elijah was standing on Mount Carmel with 450 false prophets, and God was ministering to the people through Elijah and showed all of the false prophets to be followers of Baal, the devil, and they were all killed. God intervened through Elijah, and the people began to follow God. Sometimes we don’t like where God has put us, as it is not in the plans we have for our lives, but God has bigger plans for each of us and places us where He wants us to be at the right times. Maybe this is how you feel today as you are not where you want to be, but you need to consider that God has you where you are because you can be more effective there. Maybe He wants you to take advantage of the opportunities in front of you, and be faithful in the little things at this time, as He may have plans for bigger things later on. If God has placed you out in a ravine like Elijah, just hang in there. Be faithful, do what God is calling you to do; wait on Him and in His timing He will do something wonderful for you. Remember that you are where you are today, not because of your decisions but because of God’s.
