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”

…From yesterday…

Elijah must probably have rehearsed this script severally in his mind before meeting the woman. The woman too who had received a commandment from God to help to sustain the prophet was happy when the prophet only asked for water. She was in a hurry to give him water as long as he didn’t ask for food.

She didn’t complain until Elijah mentioned food!

Here is the gist: When God triggers a miraculous flow into your life, never shortchange yourself. God has brought several “kairos moments” the way of many people but their small heart couldn’t take it.

Whatever God has given to you must be taken with boldness. Courage is a virtue and the hand that picks that which God has promised us. Don’t ever develop a cold feet at the verge of your breakthrough.

Don’t let timidity deny you of your testimony. Don’t you ever ask for water when you want food. Do not say yes when you mean to say no! That is a nursery rhyme but of course with great meaning.

I want you to know that God is an inexhaustible resource. He can never finish! Don’t reduce God to the level of a great man you know. He is not just great, He is greatness personified. He made the heaven and the earth and owns it totally.

He made all things and in Him all things consist. He asked Elijah to go ask a poor widow for sustenance and He kept His word! God doesn’t have a problem using anyone and anything to get across to you and you must know it.

What matters is obeying Him totally, and yielding completely to His leading. Take your eyes away from the poor widow and focus on God’s instructions!

Let me ask you again, is it water you want or food? What do you really want? Go for it; never settle for less!

Love you BiG
