“And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks.”
1 Kings 17:10

In the Scriptures there is a story of the widow and Elijah. God chose to send His prophet to a pagan town, to the home of a Gentile widow who could not even take care of herself and her son. When Elijah arrived he found her gathering two sticks which she intended to use to cook the last of her food. She was in a hopeless situation but Elijah encouraged her to put away her fear and simply trust the Lord. The widow obeyed God and God honoured His promise to take care of her. For the next three years, every time she used all the meal and the oil, there was plenty the next time she needed some. They never missed a meal. Two sticks in a widow’s hand could accomplish very little but when she placed those sticks into the hand of God, her world changed.

God doesn’t need a lot to work with - all He is looking for from us is the faith to place our two sticks in His hands. When we do, everything changes.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I surrender to You my life, all in all, knowing You can bring glory out of my life.
Amen
