EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR

TEXT: 1 KINGS 17:8- 16
8 And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,
9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
11 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.
12 And 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.
13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
14 For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.
15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.
Key Verse: Matthew 14:28, 29 “And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water. And He said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus”
With unwavering faith in God, every believer can do exploits in life and ministry. We shall consider some exploits by Elijah and Peter. The just shall be supernaturally sustained by faith. Elijah
and the widow of Zarephath were sustained by the little flour and the oil of the widow throughout the famine period. Elijah said to that woman, “This is what the Lord is saying, the oil and the flour shall not finish until the time that God sends rain back on the earth.” The woman believed God and she saw the miracle of God.
Joshua told the sun to stand still, and the sun stood still. The word of the just
carries enough power that can reverse the course of nature. By the word of Elijah, the earth withdrew her rain for a period of three and a half years and by the same word, the rain returned back to the earth again. What a power that God has bestowed upon the mortal man and woman of faith!
When the word of God comes to you that you will finish your school, nothing can stop you from finishing your school. Those who have the revelation of the word of God are always lifted to a higher realm. Peter and the other disciples of Jesus were in the boat on the sea. They saw Jesus walking on the water. Peter already knew the power in the word of God. He knew that if the word of God was released, it carried with it a complete package of power to accomplish the will of God. Peter, having known the power behind the word said, Lord, if you are the one, invite me to come. Peter knew he would not survive if he jumped into the river on his own, so he waited for a word from the Lord. Jesus spoke just a word, “Come.” That one word carried all the power of the Godhead. That word carried all miracle power. That one word turned the water into a solid ground for Peter to walk upon.
Thought for the day:
The just will truly do the miraculous by faith.
Song for the day:
The walls of Jericho fell down ﬂat
Bible reading for the day:
Genesis 46-48; Matthew 14:22-36
