Good Morning Everyone,
thank you for joining me and welcome to “Dee’s Thoughts”. We can all identify with this Gentile widow woman in regard to us having very little at times and not knowing where the next provision will be coming from for the next day. In verse 7 we see that the Lord has already spoken to Elijah and to the woman at different times and has told them what to do.
Elijah is told to go to her place and she will provide for him food to eat. Elijah tests her faith by asking her to feed him first and then cook their meal from the little left in her jar. If she is to think this out logically, she can only come to the conclusion that if she does that there will not be enough left for her and her son. Herein lies the test….Trust in God to provide, or live in fear!
She obeys and feeds Elijah first knowing that there will probably not be enough left for her and her son. But Grace and Mercy finds her in her obedience and what she had lacked is now replanted right before her eyes. What was true for this widow women is also true for us today, when we trust we will also see the hand of God reaching into our own situations .
When we think we have scraped the bottom of (our) Jar and got the last of what may be left there, is right where God works the best…in our lack is His supply! When our faith is put in Him our empty jars are filled again and again. The supply never runs dry because the supplier (Jesus) will always give us what we need right when we need it.
