The Lord Commanded the Ravens

The Lord Commanded the Ravens 

Every time we sing the worship song, ‘Good, good Father’ (by Chris Tomlin) in Church, I am deeply moved. My spirit soars.

I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone
You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am


The song reminds me of what I believe and know, and I am convinced that my Lord is able. Able to do immeasurably more than all I can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Able to make all grace abound (2 Corinthians 9:8). Able to help me when I am being tempted to take a wrong path (Hebrews 2:18). Able to save (Hebrews 7:25). Able to guard me from falling (Jude 24). Able to guard (2 Timothy 1:12). 

The word of the Lord came to Elijah saying, ‘you will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there’ (1 Kings 17:2-4). Think about that, the Lord commanded the ravens to feed his beloved servant.  

The Lord is a good good father, it’s who He is and we are loved by Him, it’s who we are and so He is able to do more than we can imagine. May the Lord order the ‘ravens’ in our lives to feed us.
