Key Verse: “Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongs to Zidon, and dwell there; behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee” (1 Kings 17:9).

TEXT: 1 Kings 17:8–16 (KJV)

8 And the word of the Lord came to him, saying,

9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongs 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 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 them for me and my son, that we may eat them 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, nor shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sends 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 was not wasted, nor did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spoke by Elijah.

DCLM Daily Manna for Today MESSAGE:

Famine in human history is ancient and recurrent. Abraham, with his son and grandson, Isaac and Jacob, respectively, had their own experiences of this unpleasant situation. However, the fact is that God gave each of them victory.

The text reveals another episode of famine in the land of Israel. The whole nation, including the prophet of God, felt the devastation that this calamity unleashed on the people. The divine providence that brought Elijah the prophet, the widow of Zarephath, and her household out of famine is the focus of our reflection this day.


Elijah obeyed God’s instruction that he should go to Zarephath and dwell there for his sustenance. The widow, on her part, obeyed, with adorable submission, the word and instruction of the prophet to provide him with a little cake. And the God of Miracle multiplied the meager flour and oil of the poor woman into a storehouse of food that sustained them all. “And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah, and she and he (Elijah) and her house did eat many days.”.

Thoughts for the Day
All that we need in life is in Jesus. He satisfies adequately.

Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept you as my Lord and personal savior. I believe in my heart that you died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank you, Lord, for saving me, in Jesus name, Amen.
