Verse of the Day: Elijah and the Widow’s Miracle

13 And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. 14 For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’”

15 So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.

1 Kings 17:13-16 (NKJV)

I’m pretty sure you all know the story of the widow and Elijah. The key to her miracle was that she heard the man of God and she obeyed. Obedience is so key here. We can hear God’s voice in our lives and we’re glad, shoutin’, and praisin’ God but sometimes we don’t listen and obey it. Remember that the key to your miracle today is obedience!

From the Life Application Bible:

When the widow of Zarephath met Elijah, she thought she was preparing her last meal. But a simple act of faith produced a miracle. She trusted Elijah and gave all she had to eat to him. Faith is the step between promise and assurance. Miracles seem so out of reach for our feeble faith. But every miracle, large or small, begins with an act of obedience. We may not see the solution until we take the first step of faith.
