God Is Our Help And Our Salvation! (1 Kings 17:8-16)

Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Elijah was one of God’s faithful Old Testament prophets. Elijah served during the time of King Ahab. King Ahab was so evil that the Bible tells us, “Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him” (1 Ki. 16:33). As Elijah kept faithfully speaking God’s Word, he ran into opposition and persecution from Ahab. Because of the wickedness of Ahab and his wife, Jezebel, and the Jewish people the Lord decided to send a drought as a judgment on them, to try to humble them and turn them to Him. God sent Elijah to Ahab to tell him about the drought, which Elijah did. Then God told Elijah to get away from Ahab so Ahab would not be able to take revenge on him. Elijah went and hid by a brook. God had told Elijah, “You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there. … There by the brook, “The ravens brought [Elijah] bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. And it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land” (1 Ki. 17:4, 6-7).
