Finally, when the brook dried up, God told him to go to a widow's home. She was very unselfish and poor. Down to her last meal, she still shared with Elijah what she had. God came through for them in a miraculous way, never letting her run out of the oil and flour all through the 3.5 years of the drought!
The jar of flour and the jug of oil were never empty. This happened just as the Lord, through Elijah, said it would.--I King 17:16
We too must remember to obey Romans 12:13 like the widow which says:
Share with God's people in need. Practice hospitality.I have a hard time picturing me inviting a total stranger to stay in my home for three and half years! I wonder what would have happened though had she not welcomed Elijah to stay and fed him what she had. Would God still provided for her needs had she turned Elijah away or would she and her son have starved to death?
