#Devotional| DRAMA MINISTERS YEAR OF GREAT MANIFESTATION: "SURVIVING IN TIMES LIKE THESE" (Mike Bamiloye)


A decree had come from the Heavens to earth through a man of God. The heaven was to seal up and to refrain from sent rain into a particular nation to teach them a lesson. So, there was an impending horrible drought that would subsist on earth till the people have a change of heart to look in the Lord's direction. But what shall the Lord do for His servant who was on earth, who delivered the message? While the earth was in drought, a reservation must be made for the Lord's servant not to partake in the evil rewards of the godless.
So, up somewhere, inside a large kitchen, some Angel-Chefs were called to prepare some food. The menu was simple, Bread and Barbecue Meat! For breakfast and for dinner, continuously till the Lord order them to close up the kitchen.
The earth was to dry up for the great drought, but the Lord God kept a river still flowing, full of crystal clear, clean and cold water: RESERVED FOR HIS SERVANT ONLY. And the sun will be hot in the sky, He prepared a cool clean cave by the flowing river for His Servant. Do you know what that means? A beautiful cool apartment with fantastic landscape with waterfront, excellent for proper spiritual meditation. He directed his servant to go and lodge there away from the curse that was about to start raging all around.
How would the Man of God get access to the food that the angels were preparing? He has the whole world in His hand and all the creatures therein. He could make any of them His Courier Service. He could turn any of them to messengers. So, the Lord thought of the creature to deliver the food daily: Ravens are very smart birds. They are extremely intelligent and their wisdom could be compared to that of the apes and the dolphins. Ravens can mimick any sound and voice, and are very deceptive and crafty among other birds. They have loud and sharp voice and are very playful. God sent for Ravens, they would do the job intelligently and they would be able to deliver the food and also play with God's servant each time they brought the breakfast and dinner.
So, all arrangement were set for God's servant in the terrible time of famine, to be very comfortable and satisfied. There was famine on the way, people would have no food to eat and water to drink, because the heaven was to be sealed up, but, all arrangement had been put in place for God's servant to be comfortably accommodated in a waterfront cave apartment and all feeding had been booked for his breakfast and dinner of freshly baked bread and barbecue or roasted meet and a regular supply of cold spring water, plus a beautiful landscaped view from his verandah outside the cave. Hear the Word of God that promised this same scenario for God's children:
Psalm 37:18-19 NKJV
[18] The LORD knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever.
[19] They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
But let's look at the conditions for these beautiful provisions to be accessible. The Lord God had played His part with all preparations put in place: The accommodation, the the caterers and the servers had all been arranged.
I KINGS 17:1-6
[1] 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 my word."
[2] Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying,
[3] "Get away from here and turn 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 there."
[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.
Imagine this scenario: The Ravens who were to serve the food, had been given the address of where to take the food: "...I have commanded the ravens to feed you THERE" and imagine the Man of God, had decided he would not stay by the brook of Cherith, but prefered somewhere else and had gone to stay by the Lake Gennesaret...while the Lord had commanded the Servers to bring the food to Brook Cherith. Even though, Elijah was doing the will of God by proclaiming to the people of Israel, even though Elijah was a prophet of God, and had served the Lord and had proclaimed a drought....HE TOO WOULD HAVE SUFFERED WITH THE PEOPLE, because, he did not comply with the Lord's instructions of going to stay where the Lord had prepared to cater for him.
[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.
This story is the simple solution to existing joyfully and peaefully during hard times. When you are a child of the Living God and you are in covenant with God, in following Him and doing His will and obeying His voice; and you are in touch with Him in consulting Him for steps to take, what to do and where and when to go, you will always know that He has always made a pleasant arrangement for your lacks and needs, as He had already made an arrangement for the lamb Abraham would use for sacrifice. The lamb had been waiting on the mountain while Abraham was still thinking of the lamb to be used for the sacrifice.
What of you? You must not miss your divine location this year. You must be where you will discover your miracles.
You will must go to where your divine helpers who have been looking for you will locate you.
You must be where you will locate the life partners you have been praying for.
You must go to where the presence of the Lord will grant you all the favors you need.
You must be where the Lord wants you to be.
HE HAD MADE A PLEASANT ARRANGEMENT AHEAD OF YOU...
WAITING FOR YOU TO OBEY HIS VOICE AND BE WHERE HE WANTS YOU TO BE.
Naira is getting devalued. Crude oil have been battered to the lowest in the world market; Dollar have appreciated against our Naira up to N320 to One Dollar and Nigeria staff of food seems to be breaking. Many salaries have not been paid and many debts are hanging unpaid...This is surely famine...but there will still be rain when all the Prophets of Baal in our seat of Government have all been put to shame and God has answered our prayers by fire. THERE WILL BE RAIN AGAIN...!
But, pending the time...this is Famine staring us in the face. This is Famine!...but you can survive and be comfortable. Miracles can be your companions, as Ravens were serving Elijah. The Lord can single you out for blessing as He singled Elijah out for provisions and made a river to be flowing in front of his dwelling cave apartment, in the time of drought. HE CAN SINGLE YOU OUT FOR MIRACLES AND WONDERS....
IT WILL BE POSSIBLE WHEN WE ARE ADDICTED TO HEARING HIS INSTRUCTIONS AND OBEYING HIS VOICE.
Be where He wants you to be, so that you can contact your miracles and provisions.
Go where He asks you to go only and not wherever you feel like going.
Do whatever He asks you to do and not what you feel like doing because you thing you have talent and gift for it.
That is the simple spiritual trick to experiencing miracles while the world is in discomfort.
You are blessed indeed.
- MIKE BAMILOYE.
