Tested and Tried

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. —1 Kings 17:11

Drought had caused great famine in the land and had driven Elijah to ask the widow for bread and water. Her response is probably similar to ones you have made when someone has made seemingly unreasonable demands on your resources. When we focus on the possibility of failure, we see only our limitations.

But the widow trusted Elijah because she knew he heard from God. She trusted enough to give sacrificially out of what she needed to survive herself! This is a divine principle of kingdom living that God has set before us: "seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33).

It is not so much what is in our hand that matters as much as how we hold it. Give freely and joyfully, and the results will be as amazing as it was with this woman. Always remember, whatever you give to God never leaves your life-.-.-.-only your hand.

Lord Jesus, make Your kingdom the first
priority in my life. Fill me with joy as I
serve and give. I trust You to take care
of all my needs. Amen.
