In today’s podcast I talk about when we give from our little. The Bible story is from 1 Kings 17:7-14 about Elijah and the widow. In this story we see how God used a woman who thought she and her son were about to die because they had no food. We see God not only provided for His prophet Elijah but by the widow being obedient and using her meager offerings, the Lord multiplied what little she had and her and her son lived a long, full life.
He wants to do a miracle right in he middle of our ‘not enough’. We feel like we’re inadequate, and we have nothing to offer, but all He asks for us is to trust Him and He will provide from our ‘not enough’ places- not just for us, but for others as well.
Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)- 28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
