Trusting God in the Midst of Your Drought Season

It’s easy to trust God when things are going well. But what do we do when we come to a season of “drought” in our lives? The one thing I like about seasons is that they’re not permanent: meaning they will change at some point.

My pastor once taught a message entitled, “What Do You Do When Your Brook Dries Up”. God was definitely speaking to me and my husband that night as we were going through a “drought” in our lives. It seemed like every door and avenue was closed and we had to depend solely on God to make it day by day. I thank God for those times because it taught us how to completely put our trust in Him. We learned that even though our resources are limited, it doesn’t limit God. Today, we can confidently say that God is our ultimate source and provider.

The widow woman in 1 Kings 17: 7-24 went through some seasons within her life. This widow woman is a beautiful example of how God will provide for our needs if we just learn to do two things: 1) Be obedient to His word and 2) Have faith and trust in His ability to accomplish even the impossible. This remarkable story shows us what the power of obedience can do if we walk in faith in God.

God knows how to provide for His people. As any natural father cares for his children, so does our heavenly father care for us and will provide all of our needs according to his riches in glory (Philippians 4:19). All it takes is obedience and a measure of faith in God’s word for miracles to happen. Next time, you are in need of something, bless someone and watch God move on your behalf. Allow God to use you to be the miracle someone else needs.
