“'For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,' declares the Lord." (Isaiah 55:8)
God works in both supernatural and ordinary ways, and He determines the method. Elijah ate food miraculously delivered by ravens, but his water supply from a brook was completely natural. (1 Kings 17) When it dried up, the Lord could have made more water spring from the ground, but He didn’t.
Sometimes God uses ordinary means to move us in a new direction. The curtailment of Elijah's water supply opened the door for his next assignment.
When the Lord withholds miraculous intervention and lets our brook dry up, then He has something else planned for us.
The work of God in the everyday aspects of life is just as miraculous as His supernatural intervention. Look for His “fingerprint” in the mundane activities of life. He is there, opening and closing doors, drying up one opportunity but initiating another.
Have a good day enjoying all God has in store for you.
