DAILY READINGS: 2 Chronicles 36:1-23; Daniel 3:1-30; 2 John

And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have commanded the ravens to feed thee there. 1 Kings 17:4
Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are. James 5:17

Elijah was hiding from Ahab. But, what was he doing? Nothing! Yet Elijah was just as much in the will of God during that period of seeming idleness as when he confronted Ahab on Mt. Carmel. Are some of us enduring forced inactivity of various types? What lessons in faith, obedience, humility, guidance and trust, to mention but a few, can we learn at this time for God’s glory and our comfort? —Vernon Markle

Are you weary, are you heavy hearted? Tell it to Jesus,
Are you grieving over joys departed? Tell it to Jesus alone. — E. S. Lorenz
