I Kings 17:7-16 kjv

          How's everyone today ? Prayerfully well. Today I pondered the reason for suffering and lack in the community of faith. And What I learned is that your LACKADOCIOUS is for a good cause. No its not a word yet. Your frustration, lack, suffering, impoverished situation isn't to torture you. GOD wants GLORY out of everything in our LIVES, we say we LIVE for HIM. It's never about us it's for HIM and that person that's watching closely when you pull out a sandwich for lunch. Or its for when you had to get on the bus or train because of car issues. Or it's that your marriage isn't fairing well at all and now you are home with your parents and it doesn't look like you are leaving soon because you just lost your job. Put a pin there and start praising GOD because HE says that there is no good thing that HE will withhold from HIS PEOPLE who live upright. HE didn't say that you had to live upright in your own home. Please enjoy the post. LIKE SHARE READ and COMMENT if you're led
         Ruth Woman,  you are reading this post and you are a college graduate. You made the sacrifice, you spent the time, you did it all #right but there is suffering. You had the successful job, you gained the six digit income and you have the family that you desired. And you keep asking GOD if this is HIS plan for your life or why. 
Elijah was a man of GOD living and doing the WILL of GOD and GOD spoke to him. 
GOD said get up and to  Zarephath and when you get there I have a widow woman who will sustain you there.  A widow woman to sustain a Prophet of GOD ? Shouldn't a man of GOD have his own? Elijah had just left a place of drought. And GOD told him to  “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith. He had to drink from that brook and wait for GOD to command Ravens to bring him food.  Elijah could have told GOD that he needed the finest chariot, five special wardrobes, extra sandals and spending money before he would go to meet the widow. But he rose and obeyed. 
We are overwhelmed with what we have because it doesn't fit the status quo. We believe that we should look like our peers and drive what our peers drive. But what does GOD say about your LACK-a-docious. And we throw tantrums because we don't have the things that they have. 
We hear it preached all the time that we will have GREAT things. And the WORD of GOD promises that HE will give back to us what we gave up or sacrificed. And here is the turning point. There is a time that we will have to suffer for CHIRST's sake sacrificing a great deal. And when we do the experience isn't just for us in most cases it's for an onlooker. Someone that we may not have any idea that is watching our every move. 
When Elijah got to Zarephath, he saw the widow out picking up sticks. He asked her immediately to give him a drink. But then he asked her also for bread. And guess what she was about to have her very last portion and expected to die.  Why would our AWESOME GOD with INFINITE WISDOM send HIS MAN OF GOD to a place that was experiencing lack? And then ask the person in lack to give their last to a man of GOD who you'd think should have everything that he needs? 
The comforting WORD came. "DO NOT FEAR". He quickly encouraged her to give it to GOD because your CHANGE is here.   
Moms, Single Mothers, Women, Fathers, go ahead and trust GOD with the sacrifice. Do it as he has spoken through the prophets or men and women of GOD. 
GOD knows that you have done your best. HE knows that you have been FAITHFUL over a FEW THINGS. HE knows that you are in a tough place at this moment
but HE can REDEEM TIME. HE has allowed this suffering to be an example of what  HIS GLORY looks like.
Give GOD your last oil and flour. Go ahead and cook it and donate it to the cause as HE leads you. DON'T FEAR. 
 And your bin of flour will not be used up, nor will the jar of oil run dry, according to the WORD of the LORD which HE spoke by Elijah. 
Go ahead and rejoice.
PRAISE GOD for HIS BEST. Suffer for the moment. Endure. HE will come to your RESCUE dividing and conquering on your behalf. 
          FATHER, thank YOU for suffering. Even though it sounds like sacrilegious or contrary to YOUR WILL. We denounce our plans. We forfeit anything that isn't in YOUR PERFECT WILL. 
We submit to YOUR GREAT AUTHORITY which is in CHRIST JESUS who KNOWS ALL for our sakes. Let nothing we do be done in vain strife or for the eyes of man. But let everything that we touch prosper only because it is in YOUR WILL for our lives. We love and adore YOU. We Worship YOU Oh GOD because YOU are WORTHY of the PRAISE alone. 
And YOU know right well what we need.
It is all for YOUR GLORY we pray in JESUS's MIGHTY NAME

I Kings 17:7-16 kjv
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.
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.
11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
12 And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
14 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.
15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.
