“But she said, “I swear by the Lord your God that I don’t have a single piece of bread in the house.
And I have only a handful of flour left in the jar and a little cooking oil in the bottom of the jug.
I was just gathering a few sticks to cook this last meal, and then my son and I will die.”
1 Kings 17: 12
The widow at Zarephath was in a crisis. The little food she had left was about to run out.
She had gone to gather a few sticks she could use to cook the last meal for her and her son then die.
Like I said, crisis.
But God came through for her. He sent Elijah and when she obeyed him by making him a meal
first the Lord provided for her in an amazing way.
“So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days.
There was always enough flour and olive oil left in the containers, just as the Lord had promised
1 Kings 17:15, 16
I share this scripture because it teaches us a truth about our God – He loves to come through for us.
No matter how bad things get God has got your back.
No matter how deep you are in trouble, God will help you out.
When there seems to be no way out of the trouble you face, He will ALWAYS come through for you.
Throughout scripture we see this truth play out over and over and over.
With Daniel when he was thrown in the lions den
With David, when King Saul was hunting him down
When Hannah was being ridiculed for being barren
When the Israelites were trapped by the Red Sea as the Egyptians chased them
I could go on and on but I think you get the picture.
God loves to come through for you.
So in whatever trouble you find yourself no matter how bad it is, remember that
God is for you. He wants to help you.
Ask for His help always!
Bless you friends
