Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #And it came to pass when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? I Kings 18:17

    King Ahab is mistaken when he asks Elijah art thou he that troubleth Israel when Elijah responds I have not troubled Israel, but thou and thy father's house in that ye have forsaken the commandments of Jehovah and hast followed Baalim. Elijah had to hold back the heavens from rain as an act of judgment from Jehovah God. So Elijah tells Ahab to send and gather the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table. There Elijah is going to prove who the real God in Israel is to worship. For Ahab has been breaking the first commandment: Thou shalt have no other god before Jehovah. For Jehovah God is a jealous God. Jealousy is His name. Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, mind, soul, and strength. This is the first and great commandment. Yet the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

  • #And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all the fountains of water and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts. I Kings 18:5

    Ahab is wicked and only thinks about the beasts to save and not the souls of men and women that he has corrupted? What a tragedy as Obadiah is hiding his prophets in the cave by fifty from Jezebel and fed them with bread and water. Being politically correct is not what counts, but rather being Biblically correct is what will save souls. Elijah is about to call out to Jehovah God to do the greatest miracle yet. 

  • #And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying Go shew thyself unto Ahab and I will send rain upon the earth. I Kings 18:1

    Elijah has been doing the will of God these past three years, now it is time to visit Ahab so that God can send rain upon the earth. Elijah had been hiding, but now God wants to show His mercy and grace in the land of the living. Whatever you are going through, trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path. That is how Jehovah God has been taking care of Elijah and He will do the same for you. Just call on Him today, Lord I need you in my life. I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I will walk with Him through the valley and shadow of death, for thou art with me, thy rod and staff comforts me. Praise God I am free!

  • #And it came to pass after these things, that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, fell sick and his sickness was so sore, that there was no breath left in him. And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom and carried him up into a loft, where he abode and laid him upon his own bed. And he stretched himself upon the child three times and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again. And the LORD heard the voice of Elijah and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. I Kings 17:17,20,21,22

    Elijah is used by Jehovah God to bring life back to the child of the widow. After the widow had cried out to Elijah about God remembering her sins and to slay her son. God is merciful and hears the prayer of Elijah, and this is the only time in the Old Testament, that Jehovah raises someone from the dead. Then the woman said to Elijah, Now by this, I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in thy mouth is the truth.

  • #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. And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah and she and he and her house did eat many days. I Kings 17:14,15

    Jehovah God blessed the household of the widow for obeying the voice of Elijah and they did eat many days. Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God. The widow woman is encouraged to serve Elijah and her house is blessed because of it. How many of us would be blessed if we too would move by faith, in serving Jehovah God? Job said I did esteem the words of His mouth more necessary than my daily food. Jesus said man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of God. Just taste and see that the Lord He is good and His mercy endures forever.

  • #And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but a 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. 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 thy son. I Kings 17:12,13

    Elijah is teaching the widow the important lesson of trusting God that He has provided just enough for her and her son. Yet she hast to make a little cake for him first, then there will be enough in the cruise for thee and thy son. We must always put the Lord first in all that we do.For we walk by faith and not by sight. God will always test our faith to make sure that we are trusting in Him alone and nothing else. We have to commit what we have into the hand of Jehovah God and know that He will bless it to be enough. It is appointed unto man once to die and God alone knows when our appointment day will come. Therefore, we are not to assume when it will come because it will stop us from doing the will of God in our lives. Putting God first means we take care of the needs of others before ourselves. We must have faith in God and not fear of failure. For I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

  • #And as she was going to fetch it, he called her and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. I Kings 17:11

    The widow woman is faithful to do what the Lord has commanded her, and while she is going, Elijah the man of God asks her for a morsel of bread. This is symbolic of Jesus being the Bread of life, and if we have Him, then we have all that we need. Jesus came down from heaven not to do His own will, but the will of Him that sent Him. So it is this, the widow is acting like Jesus to Elijah by giving him a morsel of bread. If you are hungry today, then seek Jesus who is the bread of life, and He will fill you completely. This world leaves us hungry, for it can never satisfy the basic needs of our soul. Cry out to God to save me from this world and all of its lust: the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. For only Jesus can save us from this world. For friendship with this world is enmity with God. Therefore, seek Jesus and the love of the Father. Just as the Father provided the bread for Elijah, He will provide the Bread of life for you. Call upon Him in the time of trouble and He will save you. Just Exalt Him today in your life, and give Him the glory that He alone deserves. 

  • #So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering sticks and he called her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink. I Kings 17:10

    Elijah is obeying the voice of the Lord, going to Zarephath, and lo there is the widow that Jehovah God had promised to take care of him. She was gathering sticks, which was symbolic of her faithfulness to the will of God in her life. So the man of God asks her to Fetch him a little water in a vessel. Which was symbolic of little is much when placed in the Master's hand. Elijah is a broken vessel poured out on the sanctuary of the grace of God. We have to take little steps in obedience to do the will of God in our lives. Never look down on the little things that God will ask of us along the way, for it all has a purpose in the master's hand. Jesus is the water of life, and when we have Him, we have all that we need. Just cry out to Jesus now, and say fill my cup with your water of life dear Lord. How wonderful it is when we are filled with His water to do His will in our lives. So drink today from the hand of Jesus and despise not the day of little things.

  • #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. I Kings 17:8,9

    Jehovah answers Elijah and provides a place for him to go to escape the drought and look to a widow woman who is to sustain him. Elijah has learned the important principle of waiting on the Lord for direction, and not to get ahead of God, or blame Him for his trouble. How we need to learn this principle, for this is where we live our day to day lives trusting in Jehovah to sustain us. Trust in the Lord and do good and verily thou shalt be fed. David said I have been young and old, not once have I seen the righteous forsaken or his seed begging bread. Just pray for the Lord to show you His glory and He will. Elijah is a man just like us. Thank God for this example in scripture He has given us to look to in our day to day lives. Have faith in God. For without faith, it is impossible to please Him. 

  • #And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up because there had been no rain in the land. I Kings 17:7

    Where do we go when the brook drys up? Elijah is obeying the Lord God and the Ravens have been bringing him food, and the brook provided water. But now the brook has dried up and the Ravens have finished their duty. This is a perplexing question that we have to answer in life, for things can be going well when you obey the voice of the Lord, and then trouble gets in the way. We serve an on time God, who can use the miraculous to provide for his people. Elijah commanded that it not rain, because of the sin in the land, and even though he has not sinned, he too is perplexed by what God is doing. The answer to this question is always the same, and that is to wait on the Lord for the next direction. Those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up up with wings as an eagle, they will run and not faint, they shall walk and not grow weary. So if you find yourself in a similar situation as Elijah is, then wait I say upon the Lord. Our God is never late, and never early, He is an on time God. Just whisper a prayer in the morning, Whisper a prayer at noon, whisper a prayer in the evening, for Jesus is on the main line, tell him what you want. Our God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than we can ask or think. Just trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct thine pathway. Elijah is not afraid, because he knows the same God who sent the Ravens to feed him and the brook to give him drink, will provide when they are gone. Our God can do anything but fail, so trust in Him. The key is to fear not, for God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love, and a sound mind. Wait I say upon the Lord and He shall sustain you, for He will not suffer the righteous to be moved. It may be you are in a bad marriage, and your mate has left you. Wait I say upon the Lord, for He has promised never to leave you or to forsake you. Wait I say upon the Lord and be of good courage.
