Miracles Are Not Following You, They Are Waiting For You
Miracles are waiting for you. We know Christ provides seed to the Sower and that supernatural signs follow the Disciples of Christ such as casting out devils, speaking in new tongues, and healing the sick (Mark 16:17-18).
But it’s also clear in Scripture that miracles are not following you, but waiting for you. When you find the place, you find the miracle. When you find the place, you find the financial blessing. When you find the place, you find the breakthrough.
“And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word. And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and flesh in the morning, and bread and flesh in the evening; and he drank of the brook.” (1 Kings 17:1-6)
Elijah was a mighty prophet of God. The Bible says he was a Tishbite. He was hidden in the wilderness until it was time for his ministry activation. God gave him the assignment to confront Ahab, king of Israel. He told Ahab it would not rain again until he said so. That’s boldness! After the confrontation, the Lord revealed to Elijah the place of provision. “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan. And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there.” Notice Elijah’s place of provision was at a place called there. At that place, God had commanded the ravens to feed him breakfast and dinner. For Elijah to find blessing, he had to be obedient. His blessing was on the other side of his obedience. His blessing was waiting for him in a place. This is key, find the place, find the blessing.
Elijah was hidden from danger and supernaturally fed. After a while, his provision began to dry up. “And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land” (1 Kings 17:7).
Have you ever had that happen to you? You did what the Holy Spirit told you to do and received supernatural breakthrough, but one day, things began to dry up. “What’s happened,” you ask? What happened is seasonal change. When blessing dries up, look for a change of season in your life. God didn’t forget you, He has need of you elsewhere. I’m not talking about changing churches here. (Needless to say, if you are in a dead church, get out.) We are talking about listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit for your next assignment.
As the brook began to dry up, the Holy Spirit spoke to Elijah again. “And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath” (1 Kings 17:8-10). There it is again, miracle provision was waiting for him in another place. Miracle provision was not following Elijah, they were waiting for him. The Holy Spirit said, “I have commanded a widow woman to sustain thee.” Where? In a place called there.
Your miracle breakthrough is waiting in a place for you. Listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying. Make sure you do what He says. He has commanded miracles for you. Find the place, find the miracle. Miracles are not following you, they are waiting for you. Find the place, find the financial provision. Find the place, find the breakthrough. Obedience is key.
