Command For Your Comfort

Key Verse

“And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee” (1 Kings 17:8-9).

Text — 1 Kings 17:7-16


In May 1908, John Graham Lake and his family of a wife and seven children, without having a particular place as destination, left for South Africa. The Lake family had been praying diligently for a home when they reached Johannesburg. All they had was their prayer and faith in God. Without prior arrangement, on arrival, an American woman was frantically looking for a family with the number of Lake’s family. The American lady went on to explain how God had directed her to meet their boat and that on it would be an American missionary family consisting of two adults and seven children and that she was to give them a home. She accommodated them and settled them in a furnished home. She remained a faithful friend throughout their ministry.

Lake’s story is similar to the accommodation of Elijah by the widow of Zarephath in our text. All that Elijah did was to obey the command of God. Christian youth today must hear from God and obey His commands. As God multiplied the oil, loaves and fishes, so can He multiply resources for your comfort.


Obey His command


Never limit God.

Prayer for today

Help me Lord, to trust and obey you always.
