1KINGS 17:5 ESV
So he went and did according to the word of the Lord . He went and lived by the brook Cherith that is east of the Jordan.
The Lonely Servant’s Life
As messengers of God, we will often lead lonely lives. “All men forsook me,” said Paul. It is a price we have to pay; there is a loneliness in the Gospel. Yet you will not be alone, because you will be ministered to by the Spirit of God, as Elijah was ministered to at the brook Cherith. A true messenger lives a burdened life. If he is the Lord’s vessel, he carries in his heart a burden for souls none can share but those who know it firsthand.
Just as Your Spirit took care of Elijah, I know I am not alone in Your service, almighty God.
