God Already Made the Way For You

What is God asking you to do? He may be requiring you to do something that is stretching your faith, but don’t be afraid to take him at his word. You may not know how he is going to work out your situation, but he will reward your faith in him.  


In 1 Kings 17, God told Elijah to go to the Brook Cherith. There, the ravens fed him and sustained him through a severe famine in Israel. Talk about fast food! God used the stingiest birds to feed his prophet who was willing to take a stand against the wicked king, Ahab and his wife, Jezebel.

“And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land” (1 Kings 17:7 KJV). When the brook dried up, the ravens quit coming because there was no more water to drink. Pay attention when certain sources start drying up. Sometimes it is not the enemy attacking you. Maybe God is trying to get your attention because he has better for you.

“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). Don’t forget to thank God for the miracles of sustainment. Sometimes we’re so focused on believing God for the big breakthrough that we forget to notice the smaller miracles of provision he gives us.

A lot of times, God will give you your harvest in stages, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together before he gives you a running-over blessing, so praise him for the small miracles because if you are faithful with the little, God will increase you.


So, God told Elijah to go to Zarephath because he had commanded a widow woman to sustain him. I want you to know that God already made the way for you. You may be wondering how your situation is going to work out, but the Holy Ghost wants me to tell you that God has already gone ahead of you and worked everything out. All you have to do is step out in obedience to his word. Trust him. Where he guides, he provides.

“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” (1 Kings 17:10). As she was going to get it, Elijah called to her and also asked for a piece of bread, but she replied that she didn’t have any except a handful of flour and a little cooking oil. “…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” (1 Kings 17:12).

This woman had already lost all hope, but man’s extremity is God’s opportunity to show himself strong on your behalf. “Don’t be afraid,” Elijah told the woman. “Go and do as you have said but make me a little cake first and bring it to me and then make some for you and your son.” “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” (1 Kings 17:14).

The woman acted on that prophetic word, and she did just as Elijah told her. The Bible says faith without works is dead (James 2:26). “…and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah” (1 Kings 17:15-16).

Little is much when God is in it. You may have five loaves and two fish, but when you put what you have into God’s hands, he will multiply it and blow your mind with a blessing that you will not have enough room to receive. God is not asking you to figure out how everything is going to work out. He is just asking you to take him at his word and take a step of faith. Trust him. God already made the way for you!
