first, then second

Elijah boldly told King Ahab there would not be any dew or rain for several years unless he, Elijah, spoke the word. (See I Kings 17:1.) “God then told Elijah, ‘Get out of here, and fast. Head east and hide out at the Kerith Ravine on the other side of the Jordan River. You can drink fresh water from the brook; I’ve ordered the ravens to feed you. Elijah obeyed God’s orders. He went and camped in the Kerith canyon on the other side of the Jordan. And sure enough, ravens brought him his meals, both breakfast and supper, and he drank from the brook.” (I Kings 17: 2-6, The Message)

It wasn’t until after Elijah talked to the king that God gave Him the next step. There was no need for God to give Elijah direction and the plan of provision until that bold act was carried out. God’s provision came as a result of obedience.
