When Elijah reached the gates of Zarephath he called out to the widow and asked her to bring him water and bread. The Lord was planning a healing event with lessons to be learned. She responded by bringing a handful of meal and a little oil which was all she had for the last meal she would be preparing for her child and herself.
Where are the Elijahs of God? – Do you have a little oil? – Yes, you do – what God placed in you.
Will you stir up the gift of the Holy Spirit, ignite the fire of His Spirit within you?
The woman was preparing to die of starvation but God had another plan for her. He told her the meal and the oil would not get over. She went and did as Elijah bade her. The handful of meal never grew less, nor the oil diminished for many days till God sent the rain and the famine was over according to His Word.
What you keep is all you have. What you give God multiplies.
Give God the little you have and He will multiply it manifold.
Perhaps you are discouraged, ready to quit. God says no!
– He is asking you, do you have a little oil? He is saying He filled you with His Spirit and you presently do have a little oil in your lamp – let the fire burn in your heart, the oil will not run out and you will bring forth miracles.
God is raising up prophets like Elijah – Do you still want to be an Elijah of God?
With God’s grace and direction, start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible!
Also, DO NOT LIMIT God’s channels.
Expect the seemingly impossible good to come from Him. For before you call He answers and His supply precedes your demand.
There is always a way out of every situation under Grace.
So run to the throne of Grace and you will receive mercy and find grace for help in time of need.
Crave the blessings of the Lord for they will make you rich with no sorrow added.
The only person you’re destined to become is the person you decide to be. The ladder to success is never crowded at the top. Stop dwelling all the time in the midst of chickens. Remember you are an eagle – let the eagle fly!
Be Blessed and Highly Favoured!
