1 Kings 17:10 “So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink”
Elijah met this widow where she was gathering sticks. Looking at it on the surface, we can interpret it to mean that she was putting together sticks to go and cook. That is correct but it carries a deeper meaning.
Everyone of us must master the act of gathering sticks. As a matter of fact, if you don’t gather sticks you cannot come out of whatever trouble you’re in. It is our primary assignment as believers to gather sticks!
Before you think I’m beginning to sound heretic or asking you to start using firewood, let’s consider some scriptures:
Leviticus 6:12 “And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings.”
Leviticus 6:13 “The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out”
There is something called the law of the burnt offering:
Leviticus 6:9 “Command Aaron and his sons, saying This is the law of the burnt offering: It is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the altar all night unto the morning, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it.”
This is the primary function of the priest. Every priest must obey this law. Any priest that does not obey this law daily is disobeying God and toying with trouble. This law was specifically given to the priest and if you may know, you are a priest.
Revelations 5:10 “And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”
Every born again child of God is a priest and therefore mandated to obey this law.
