“So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow was there gathering 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). That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Prior to our Focal Scripture, God told Elijah to go to Zarephath where He had commanded a widow to feed Elijah. Besides speaking of Zarephath and the widow who would feed Elijah, God did not mention any specifics. God did not give the address of the woman, and He didn’t give any physical description.
Your mission shall be simple… if it is God-ordained
As Elijah entered the gate of the city, the woman was already there, gathering what she would use to prepare food. Elijah did not need to waste time and efforts before he saw the woman; he found her easily without asking questions. Whereas it would be difficult to locate someone in a strange land, for Elijah, it was an unusually simple task.
Friend, hear God’s prophetic word: your mission shall be simple. You will make uncommon achievements with ease; you will find your desired opportunities with ease; you will hit your targets with ease; your transition to your next level will happen with ease; your elevation will be easy and simple; what others struggle for will come to you on a platter of gold. Difficult processes shall be miraculously easy for you.
God will give you clear pictures of what you should do to make progress; difficult protocols will be easy for you; plans that seem difficult to implement will be amazingly easy when you start to work the plans; things that look difficult on paper will be so easy when you have to make it work.
God gave Elijah an instruction, it seemed difficult, but God made it easy. Run with a word from God, and things will be easier than you ever imagined.
Pray With Me: Lord, make my journey easy; my little efforts shall bring huge results, in Jesus’ name!
