1 Kings 17: 9-16

Putting God first

It is the widow woman in the text that I want you to consider with this morning. It is in her character, and conduct that we seem to be reminded when it comes to the things of God, we need to put God first, and bake the cake before we clean the stove. I call your attention to three things that took place in the life of this woman. First of all there is

1. The Problem That Surrounded Her!

These verses indicate that when Elijah comes to this widow woman she is surrounded by problems on every hand. She has absolutely nothing. Notice verse 12.

It is obvious that this woman has been reduced to sheer poverty, and is surrounded by a great problem. In fact, from the text we gather that:

A. She Faced A Time of Physical Loneliness!

“Loneliness is perhaps the most damaging emotional after effect in the world!”

“The most devastating malady of the age!”

B. She Faced a Time of Financial Emptiness!

v:12And 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.

2. The Prescription That Surprised Her!

A. We See an Unusual Request!

B. We See An Unhindered Response!

3. The Provision That Sustained Her!

A. The Supply Of Her Need That Was Met!

B. The Supply For Her Need That Was Multiplied!

God will take of you.

“Be not dismayed what’re betide,

God will take care of you.

Beneath His wings of love abide,

God will take care of you.

All you need He will provide,

God will take care of you.

Nothing you ask will be denied,

God will take care of you.

God will take care of you,

Thru every day, o’er all the way.

He will take care of you,

God will take care of you!”

This message is dedicated to God and was inspired by my loving wife Dang.
