God is your unfailing source

“The brook dried up.” 1Ki 17:7 NIV

The Psalmist wrote, “Joyful are those…whose hope is in the Lord their God” (Ps 146:5 NLT). One author writes: “Sometimes when there’s not enough money to make ends meet, people tell us to budget and we chuckle. We look at the situation and say, ‘No way.’ That’s the time to trust God. Your possibilities aren’t limited by past or present circumstances. If there’s not enough to pay legitimate expenses, do your best and then let go. Trust God to supply your need, then look beyond your wallet. Look to your source. Claim a divine, unlimited supply. Do your part. Strive for financial responsibility in thought and action. Ask for wisdom, and listen to God’s leadings. Then let go of your fears and your need to control. We all know money is a necessary part of living—and so does God.” F. B. Meyer said: “The education of our faith is incomplete till we learn that God’s providence works through loss…There’s a ministry to us through the failure and fading of things. The dwindling brook where Elijah sat is a picture of our lives! ‘Some time later the brook dried up’ (1Ki 17:7 NIV) is the history of our yesterdays and the prophecy of our tomorrows. We must learn the difference between trusting in the gift and trusting in the giver. The gift may last for a season, but the giver is eternal. If the Lord had led Elijah directly to the widow at Zarephath, he’d have missed something that helped make him a better man—living by faith. Whenever our earthly resources dry up, it’s so we may learn that our hope and health are in God.”
