Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – 1 Kings 17:9

Go at once to Zarephath in the region of Sidon and stay there. I have directed a widow there to supply you with food. – 1 Kings 17:9 (NIV)

We see Elijah again in a weird situation where he has to trust God. He had been fed by ravens, now the brook he had been drinking from had dried up.

Do you ever feel like Elijah must have in this moment? That all your options have dried up? Maybe you feel hopeless, like there’s no way out. I’m sure that could have been how Elijah felt. What he had known and what had been sustaining him was gone. What was he to do?

The good news is that God already saw ahead and had a plan. There was a widow in Zarephath that was going to help him out. Elijah just had to trust God and obey what God asked him to do. As he did, the supply for what he needed was there.

The same is true for you in your life. God loves you. He has a supply for you in whatever area you need it. Just trust Him, listen to His leading, and know that He will bring you through in victory in the end.
