About This Message

1. God Blesses Bold Steps of Faith.

Then the LORD said to Elijah, “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. There is a widow there who will feed you. I have given her my instructions.”

1 Kings 17:8-9 (NLT)

So he went to Zarephath. As he arrived at the gates of the village, he saw a widow gathering sticks, and he asked her, “Would you please bring me a cup of water?” As she was going to get it, he called to her, “Bring me a bite of bread, too.”

1 Kings 17:10-11 (NLT)

2. God Provides Enough For Today. 

So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her son continued to eat from her supply of flour and oil for many days. For no matter how much they used, there was always enough left in the containers, just as the LORD had promised through Elijah.

1 Kings 17:15-16 (NLT)

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19 (NLT)

3. God Speaks Through People.

For no matter how much they used, there was always enough left in the containers, just as the LORD had promised through Elijah.

1 Kings 17:16 (NLT)

Then the woman told Elijah, “Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that the LORD truly speaks through you.”

1 Kings 17:24 (NLT)

Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.  God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy.  But for rebels, there is only famine and distress.

Psalm 68:5-6 (NLT)
