Today Reminder - 18 June 2013 (Revived)
A reminder for today
For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: There will always be flour and olive oil left in your containers until the time when the LORD sends rain and the crops grow again!" Then the woman told Elijah, "Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that the LORD truly speaks through you." (1 Kings 17:14 and 24)
What an inspiring verse. Firstly God send Elijah to this widow who was about to use her last flour to bake bread and as he asked her for food and she replied that it is her last, Elijah said that God will let there always be flour and oil in her containers and so it was. Later her son died and Elijah took him to her upper room and prayed to God to give back the boy’s life. The LORD heard Elijah's prayer, and the life of the child returned, and he revived! (Verse 22)
God once again provided for Elijah and in this He also provided for the widow that helped him. God showed His glory, His love and His grace through Elijah by doing these miracles in the widow’s house. Elijah took the light of God and brought His glory and reign into the lives of this widow and her son. And even in the midst of her worst moment God carried her.
When she was desperate for food God gave her abundance and when her son died God gave him back to her. Finally she could see that God was with Elijah and that he truly is a man of God.
My dear friend, I believe that with Jesus in our lives as the very centre of us, we can overcome all. When Jesus is the centre of your heart no evil will be able to get to you. In fact I believe that it will be impossible to get you down when Jesus is in you.
Come with me today as we place our focus, our hearts and our lives in the hands of Jesus so that the blood of Jesus can truly set us free from our own disbeliefs and lift us up to a place where the enemy will be too afraid to come near us and where people will see that we are truly are men and women of God so that we too can bring salvation through the gospel to all that we meet.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
