Christine Caine - First Things First
 

Even in the Unlikely

Elijah said to her, “Don’t be afraid. Go home and do as you have said. But first make a small loaf of bread for me from what you have and bring it to me, and then make something for yourself and your son. For this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the LORD sends rain on the land’” (1 Kings 17:13-14).

There are many examples in Scripture of God using unlikely people in unlikely places to do unlikely things.

In the Old Testament there is a story of a widow who helped Elijah when he was hungry. She only had a little bit of oil and flour, but Elijah asked her to make him a meal. The woman gave of the little that she had, and God multiplied the blessing back to her.

You see, oftentimes when we are looking for the big, God is asking us to steward the small. Personally, I never would have made it to where I am today, had I not been faithful where God had placed me in the past.

So, just like the widow used what she had and saw it multiplied back to her, look at what you already have. The principle of sowing and reaping will be proven time and time again, and God can use you right where you are with what you have, even if it seems unlikely. You can trust the Lord in this!
