When God Feeds Us from His Own Hand

,

L’viv, Ukraine

When you look at a bird, it is very unique in that it is lacking something…hands. It helps bring to light the phrase Jesus made in Matthew 6:26 (Ampl) “Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them”. We are like this bird mentioned in this verse, wings to fly in the heavenlies with Him but no hands to feed ourselves. God Himself wants to feed us that is why He leads us to the brook of need and trial. God fed the prophet Elijah by a brook “Cherith” in 1 Kings 17.4,6 by commanding the ravens to feed him bread and meat in the morning and the evening, everyday. Why this way? Intimacy. God wanted to bring the prophet to a place where he ate from the Hand of God Himself, this is one of the meanings in the Hebrew for “Cherith” - “in the face of”. With intimacy comes trust, and in trust comes depth, and in this depth comes deep communion.

Presently there are 4 dear saints in the church in L’viv here that are in the late stages of cancer. One of them, Lena, may have only 2 weeks left with us here. Lena is a teacher at the "Perilina" (our Christian Day School) with a husband and 2 daughters 9 & 7) and a precious member of the church here for 13 years. This is the first time something like this has happened in the church here and it is being used by God to bring everyone together in serving these families. Please pray as we are abiding in prayer for a miracle.
