“Elijah at Cherith”
by Morning Meditation   
September 13th, 2008

"Not one of us can dispense with some Cherith, where the sounds of earthly toil and human voices are exchanged for the murmur of the waters of quietness which are fed from the throne; and where we may taste the sweets and imbibe the power of a life hidden with Christ by the power of the Holy Ghost. Sometimes a human spirit, intent on its quest, may even find its Cherith in a crowd; of such a one God is its all sufficient abode, and the secret place of the Most High its most holy place.

We yield at first a timid obedience to a command which seems to involve manifest impossibilities; but when we find that God is even better than His word, our faith groweth exceedingly, and we advance to further feats of faith and service. This is how God trains His young eagles to fly. At last nothing is impossible. This is the key to Elijah’s experience.

How strange to be sent to a brook, which would of course be as subject to the drought as any other! How contrary to nature to suppose that ravens, which feed on carrion, would find such food as man could eat; or, having found it, would bring it regularly morning and evening! How unlikely, too, that he could remain secreted from the search of the bloodhounds of Jezebel anywhere within the limits of Israel! But God’s command was clear and unmistakable. It left him no alternative but to obey.

“So he went and did according to the word of the Lord” - F. B. Meyer
