Prepared

today's reading.
1 Kings 17:8-16    Then the word of the Lord came to him, "Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to feed you"...

We're back at 1 Kings 17 today taking a more focused look at Elijah's encounter with the widow from Zarephath. One thing I clearly saw from this passage (as well as in verses 1-7) is how God prepares our way. What a comfort to see that when God asks us to do something--serve in church, witness to someone, move into another job or to a different state, etc.--He's already made preparations in advance for us to complete the mission. 

So what's your track record with responding to God's call? As you go forward, will you allow Him to shape your life through the good and the tough situations that present themselves? Is there something God is calling you to do today? Tami
