Elijah’s recorded ministry began making declarations in to a king. But soon he found himself in a cave. While I have been vocal about prophets coming out of the cave, there are times when God hides prophets in a cave–and with good reasons.

We find these principles in 1 Kings 17:1-4:

“Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was one of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord God of Israel lives before whom I stand, there will not be dew or rain these years except by my word.”

“The word of the Lord came to him, saying, ‘Go from here and turn eastward and hide by the Kerith brook, which is east of the Jordan. You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.”

“So he went and did according to the word of the Lord, for he went and lived by the Kerith brook, which is east of 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.”

If you are in a season of hiddenness, this video teaching will bless you!

    Wow! This was powerful. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I now understand better why I’ve been experiencing some of the things I have; I’m in a place of hiddeness 🙌🏾

    I’m still hidden and it has been years now. Early on, the Lord said to me ‘I am going to put you on the shelf’ and I had no idea all that entailed. I have often referred to this place as the brook of Cherith and said I have been being fed here. He has been teaching me and refining me and it is an amazing place to be. I am so thankful to know Him as never before which has lead me to a place of trust and security in Him and a true relationship of such depth compared. I will know when and where He leads me because He has been preparing me as well as the ground He is calling me to plant in. Thank you, Jennifer for this encouraging word of truth that I so identify with.
