MEMORISE: Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness; 2 Corinthians 9:10

READ: 1 Kings 17:8-16 (KJV)

  1. And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,
  2. Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
  9. 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.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 14:1-35 , 1 Samuel 13-14


Have you ever been in a situation where you had to choose between giving someone your last penny or using it for your personal feeding since you didn’t know where the next meal would come from? That was the experience of the widow of Zarephath in our Bible reading for today. With a son to feed and nobody to depend on, she must have been devastated when she realized that she had just one meal left to eat and die of hunger due to the famine.

However, God saw her plight and sent help in disguise. If a prophet of God asks some teens of today to give their last penny, they would quickly take to twitter and say all manner of things about him. 1 Kings 17:9 says:

“Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.”

From the above passage, it is clear that the widow had a relationship with God to have received the instructions to feed Elijah from Him. Her obedience to the instruction given was the secret to her lasting miracle. Dear child, everything can turn around for your good if you obey Gods instructions.


Ask God to guide you on how to turn your meals into breakthroughs.

HYMN: There Shall Be Showers Of Blessing

  1. “There shall be showers of blessing:”
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    Sent from the Saviour above.

Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy-drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

  1. “There shall be showers of
    Precious reviving again;
    Over the hills and the valleys,
    Sound of abundance of rain.
  2. “There shall be showers of blessing;”
    Send them upon us, Oh Lord;
    Grant to us now a refreshing,
    Come and now honour Thy Word.
  3. “There shall be showers of blessing:”
    Oh, that today they might fall,
    Now as to God we’re confessing,
    Now as on Jesus we call!
  4. “There shall be showers of blessing,”
    If we but trust and obey;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    If we let God have His way.
