I Kings 17:9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
This is one of those verses that teach us so much. Elijah was told to go “there” and that God had commanded a widow to feed him “there!” God would meet both of their needs if he would just go “there” in obedience.
How many times are we missing so many blessings by not serving Him. As a young missionary you can know that He knows where you are going. He will take care of you here and “there!” You may be afraid of “there” but God isn’t.
What I love is how God met both the widow’s need and Elijah’s need. I know this worked out like this in our lives. God blessed us tremendously. He blessed those that He sent us to! Many who served us and gave to us experienced His blessings. God is God of the “here” and the “there!” Trust Him completely.
He will not lead you where He will not take care of you!
