The Lord is so faithful. In the verses before this one, the widow tells the man of God she was getting ready to dress the last she had to make for her and her son to eat and die (verse 11-12). There was no more. He tells her to make it for him and then themselves and the barrel will not waste and the cruise of oil will not fail until the Lord sends rain again (verse 13-14). Verse 16 shows that coming to pass. The widow was obedient to what God had instructed through His servant and He provided a way when it looked like there was no way!
As I read this story this morning, I kept hearing the word “obedience.” He is still that same God today that saved her widow and son so many years ago. Today we actually have a direct line of communication to Him through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. I do not know your situation or what you are lacking, but I do know it is not too great for God to provide. Are you listening and acting with an obedient heart? I think that is key to someone crying out to Him today. Open up to your Father, He longs to hear from you today. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
