Abundant Provision

Today's reading: 1 Kings 17:8-16

After the brook Cherith dries up, Elijah receives instructions from the Lord to go to Zarephath where he will find a widow who will feed him. Responding in trust and obedience, Elijah immediately heads to Zarephath, where God, once again, provides mightily for all of Elijah's needs—food, shelter, safety, companionship. Moreover, in taking care of Elijah, God also provides mightily for the obedient widow and her son. What a beautiful picture of God's care and compassion.

How has God provided for you through both good and difficult times? What's one thing that stood out to you about trusting God and being obedient from the example of Elijah and/or the widow? Tami
