Elijah Sent to the Widow at Zarephath
1 Kings 17:7-16

April 26, 2020


I. The stream dries up and God has a new plan.  1 Kings 17:7


II. An extreme test of faith meets the widow.  1 Kings 17:8‐1


III. Jesus refers to this episode as a paradigm for His own ministry.  
        Luke 4:24‐26


IV. God miraculously provides for the widow.  1 Kings 17:15‐16





Questions for reflection:

 Why is it helpful to see that God’s plan for Elijah’s life is filled with                      unexpected, faith‐ challenging twists?

 How is the widow’s willingness to prepare Elijah a meal a picture of                   believing faith?

 What does this episode tell us about the ministry of Jesus (Luke 4:24‐26)?
