Good Trouble: God's Sovereign Plans
October 02, 2022 | John Durham
I Kings 17:1
James 5:17 Elijah was a man just like us. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.
GOD USES INSIGNIFICANT PEOPLE IN UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES FOR HIS ETERNAL PURPOSES.
FOLLOWING GOD PUTS US IN OPPOSITION TO THE CULTURE WHICH IS RISKY FOR COMFORT.
VS17:2-7 GOD’S PLANS DO NOT CONFORM TO OUR LOGIC.
GOD HAD HIS PROVIDING EYE ON ELIJAH THE ENTIRE TIME
ELIJAH DIDN’T RESIST THE PROCESS
ELIJAH KNEW THE GOD HE SERVED WAS BIGGER THAN THE SITUATION HE FACED
ELIJAH’S OBEDIENCE SAVED OTHERS.
GOD’S PROVISIONS ARE EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED, NOT ALWAYS WHAT WE WANT.
