The Unbound Faith of a Widow


Psalms 146:9 The Lord watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.


The widow of Zarephath had enough flour for what was destined to be her final meal.

As she gathered sticks to prepare the meal, Prophet Elijah met her and asked for food and water. In fact, he told her to prepare some food for him first, and then for herself and her child.

It was a mighty challenge for the widow of Zarephath to use the last bit of flour to prepare a meal for the Prophet over her family. But she trusted the God of Elijah! And her faith opened a perpetual source of food in a season of famine.

Are we ready to give everything to God when He asks for it? If we trust God like the widow of Zarephath, He will change our destiny from insufficiency to abundance
