For the week of May 15, 2022
MOVING NOW WITHOUT KNOWING NEXT
People from all walks of life are looking at the future and asking the question, “What’s going to be next for my life personally, for my family, or for my job moving forward?” The challenge of scripture today is to move NOW before we know what’s NEXT. 1 Kings 17 begins with a drought brought on by the rebellion of King Ahab. God sends the prophet to announce it, then instructs him to hide. God reveals one step that the prophet is to take now and the challenge to trust God with an uncertain next. That was his challenge, and it is also ours.
