Showers of Blessing

“Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him” 1 Kings 19:18.

God answered Prophet Elijah when he told Him that he was very zealous for the Lord and he was the only one left for Him. God knew His remnant even though Prophet Elijah failed to identify them. He has kept a remnant of His people in every part of the world. The remnant of the Lord “will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth” Isaiah 10:20. Their whole trust is on the Lord because they walk supernaturally on earth according to His plans and live by His provisions. Wherever they go the people of the land will have a supernatural favor on them as they had with Joseph. The Lord protects His remnant as He protected the Israelites when they came out of Egypt “the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard” Isaiah 52:12.

He keeps them moving from place to place as He moved Abraham to fulfil His plan (Genesis 12:1-3). No matter whichever part of the world they are positioned they “shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward” Isaiah 37:31 & 2 Kings 19:30.

This is the promise of the Lord to His remnant “who have been upheld by Me from birth, who have been carried from the womb: even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry and will deliver you” Isaiah 46:3-4.

God’s remnant “shall do no unrighteousness and speak no lies, nor shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth; for they shall feed their flocks and lie down, and no one shall make them afraid” Zephaniah 3:13. He is still in the process of gathering His remnant. The Lord has kept His remnant for a great revival in the world, to repair the house of our God, to rebuild its ruins” Ezra 9:9.

”In that day the Lord of hosts will be for a crown of glory and a diadem of beauty to the remnant of His people” Isaiah 28:5.

Be Blessed!
