-------------"Whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of
-------------evil."— Proverbs 1:33
-------------Divine love is rendered conspicuous when it I shines in the midst of
-------------judgments. Fair is that lone star which smiles through the rifts of the thunder
-------------clouds; bright is the oasis which blooms in the wilderness of sand; so fair and
-------------so bright is love in the midst of wrath. When the Israelites provoked the Most
High by their continued idolatry, He punished them by withholding both dew and rain ,
so that their land was visited by a sore famine; but while He did this, He took care that
His own chosen ones should be secure. If all other brooks are dry, yet shall there be
one reserved for Elijah; and when that fails, God shall still preserve for him a place of
sustenance; nay, not only so, the Lord had not simply one "Elijah ," but He had a
remnant according to the election of grace, who were hidden by fifties in a cave, and
though the whole land was subject to famine, yet these fifties in the cave were fed, and
fed from Ahab's table too by His faithful, God-fearing steward, Obadiah. Let us from this
draw the inference, that come what may, God's people are safe. Let convulsions shake
the solid earth, let the skies themselves be rent in twain, yet amid the wreck of worlds
the believer shall be as secure as in the calmest hour of rest. If God cannot save His
people under heaven, He will save them in heaven. If the world becomes too hot to hold
them, then heaven shall be the place of their reception and their safety. Be ye then
confident, when ye hear of wars, and rumours of wars. Let no agitation distress you,
but be quiet from fear of evil. Whatsoever cometh upon the earth, you, beneath the
broad wings of Jehovah, shall be secure. Stay yourself upon His promise; rest in His
faithfulness, and bid defiance to the blackest future, for there is nothing in it direful for
you. Your sole concern should be to show forth to the world the blessedness of
hearkening to the voice of wisdom.
From Charles Spurgeon's Morning & Evening - July, Day 6, Morning.
But now, this is what the LORD says —
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not , for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the LORD, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

17:1 Elijah Proclaims a Drought
And Elijah the Tishbite, of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab,"As the LORD God of
Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, except at

eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 4 And it will be
that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you
5 So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and stayed by the
Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat
in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook. 7 And
it happened after a while that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the
