Gracious God of all glory we have come as usual to tell you that you are so good to us and our family at large. Your lovingkindness is so great and so much that we cannot tell it all. We have come to say thank you Jehovah for all you have done for us and the many you will still do for us in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
This morning by the grace of God we are going to study through the life of the widow of Zarephath and the prophet Elijah. The woman has summed up the days of her life because of the situation of the nation that seems not good enough. But as the Lord will have it good for her, Jehovah sent His messenger to her though was to feed the man as the Lord also have a plan to change herself and son death sentence.
“And the word of the LORD came to him, saying, Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks: and he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. And as she was going to bring it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thy hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die. And Elijah said to her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me of it a little cake first, and bring it to me, and afterward make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spoke by Elijah.” 1 Kings 17:8-16 (WEBSTER)
She has established her entire life on the little she had and therefore designed their living on that which they have gotten. Like many of us will do and say this is all I’ve gotten in my entire life, meaning after now no hopes elsewhere. Brethren what have said about yourself seeming working against you as at present? You are fortunate today that the Master Changer is here in WORD to turn it around for your testimony in Jesus name. Amen. From now onward your life will start to speak and the voice of your success will be sounded so loud among nations in Jesus name. I speak just like the prophet Elijah that today will not be your last day of joy in Jesus name and so shall it be that your joy will be eternal in Jesus name. Amen.
Good morning and remain in the plan of God The Master changer. Amen. Thank God it is Friday the beginning of another weekend. Enjoy it all the way friend.
