“So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.” And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’” So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days. The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.” 1Kings 17:12-16
Do you really have a plan that God can use to bring about your miracle?
It is evident from the story above that the widow of Zarephath did not just sit and wallow in the misery surrounding her she kept thinking even when it was difficult to think through. She looked at her meager resources and had little tasks of what to do.
God always show up to bless our thoughts, which are essentially our plans.
Do you have clear thoughts that could lead you out of the situation you are in or you are just blank, negative and cursing everybody you think are responsible for the situation you are in?
The platform of miracle to this widow is in ““Do not fear; go and do as you have said” Elijah could connect his faith and anointing from God to this woman’s plans and as you can see God came in to the plans and perfected it to a miracle of sustenance that lasted as long as it was needed.
Today don’t just sit down and be negative about your situation, engage yourself in thinking through and turn over your thoughts to the WORD of God and in it there is LIFE that will not only bring hope and faith but will change your negative outlook to your situation and your miracle is in the plan you have.
Don’t say after all she said she would die after she had finished her plans obviously God whose thoughts are higher than our thoughts intervened .God always blesses what is in your hands, your plans, your thoughts.
