 ”Now after a time the stream became dry, because there was no rain in the land.
 Then the word of the Lord came to him,(Elijah) saying:
 ”Up! go now to Zarephath, in Zidon, and make your living-place there; I have given orders to a widow woman there to see that you have food.”
 So he got up and went to Zarephath; and when he came to the door of the town, he saw a widow woman getting sticks together; and crying out to her he said: ” Will you give me a little water in a vessel for my drink?”
 And when she was going to get it, he said to her: ” And get me with it a small bit of bread.”
 Then she said: ” By the life of the Lord your God, I have nothing but a little meal in my store, and a drop of oil in the bottle; and now I am getting two sticks together so that I may go in and make it ready for me and my son, so that we may have a meal before our death.”
 And Elijah said to her: ” Have no fear; go and do as you have said, but first make me a little cake of it and come and give it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son.”
 For this is the word of the Lord, the God of Israel: ”The store of meal will not come to an end, and the bottle will never be without oil, till the day when the Lord sends rain on the earth.”
 So she went and did as Elijah said; and she and he and her family had food for a long time.
 The store of meal did not come to an end, and the bottle was never without oil, as the Lord had said by the mouth of Elijah.”
God never asks of us what we cannot do, he has a great blessing in store for those who are obedient.
Have a Blessed day today.
