Have you ever felt like your life was just drying up in front of your very eyes? It is happening and it doesn't seem like there is a thing you can do except sink deeper into the hole in your life. The Prophet Elijah had prayed, a drought comes into the land and it had even dried up his own water source. God always has a plan to provide for us but we have to be still enough to hear His Voice!! The inspired man of God is led to a widow's home but she only has one meal left for her and her son which they are about to eat and die. It doesn't look like it is a place of provision but they obeyed God's instruction, fixed a meal for the Man of God first by faith and God provided miraculously for them by multiplying their food in store every day. Our obedience to God can turn a desert into standing water!! TRUST HIM, it's not what it looks like, follow your faith and process your emotions the best you can until the blessings begin to flow. IT WILL RAIN in your life again!!!
And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land. And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell THERE: behold, I have commanded a widow woman THERE to sustain thee. (1 Kings 17:7-9 KJV)
God has a "THERE" for all of us!!
