Life Lesson 8 from Prophet Elijah and the Poor Widow

Believe in God

This poor widow was not an Israelite and yet God chose to perform this great miracle of feeding her and her son during the famine through His prophet Elijah because of her faith.

We know this because when Jesus was rejected by His people in the synagogue in Nazareth after he preached and they asked, “Is this not Joseph’s son?” (Luke 4:22), He told them, “A prophet is not accepted in his country” (Luke 4:24) and then He went on to tell them that “There were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah when it did not rain for 3 ½ years and there was a great famine but Elijah was not sent to any of them except to a widow in Zarephath.” (Luke 4:25)

By giving this example in this context Jesus was showing the people of Nazareth that this widow had faith in the God of Israel even though she was from Sidon and that is why God chose to send His prophet to her.


Therefore regardless of who you are or where you live, decide to have faith and believe in the God of Israel so that He can solve your problems and use you to achieve His purposes here on earth.
