The Walk of Faith

     This passage spoke so powerfully to me this morning!!! The Lord God had instructed Elijah to hide from King Ahab during a period of 3 years and this is the only recording of his life during this period.  Wondering if anybody else needs this revelation!!!  I feel led to share this just in case!!!                                                                                                                                  1 Kings 17:5-16   So Elijah did what the    Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook. 7 Some time later the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. 8 Then the word of the Lord came to him: 9 "Go at once to Zarephath of Sidon and stay there. I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food." 10 So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her and asked, "Would you bring me a little water in a jar so I may have a drink?" 11 As she was going to get it, he called, "And bring me, please, a piece of bread."

     12 "As surely as the Lord your God lives," she replied, "I don't have any bread — only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it — and die." 13 Elijah said to her, "Don't be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. BUT FIRST make a small cake of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, AND THEN make something for yourself and your son. 14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: 'The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord gives rain on the land.'" 15 She went away and did as Elijah had told her. So there was food EVERY DAY FOR ELIJAH AND FOR THE WOMAN AND HER FAMILY.  16 For the jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the word of the Lord spoken by Elijah.  

     This was NOT a one-time miracle but an ON-GOING DAILY MIRACLE that carried them through this period of drought day after day!!! This is another aspect of the WALK OF FAITH that God calls us to.   Lord, give me wisdom and faith to believe and act as you would ask of me.
