Flour and oil: 1 Kings 17
Woman at this time where subordinate to men and obedience is of no surprise. And I am sure there was initial reluctance to believe she would have flour and oil until the next rain. But she submitted. That drought was hard on everyone. Just flour and oil is slim pickings! Just flour and water is not a bad thing. Pay check to paycheck is not a bad thing. Lord let me appreciate what I have today. Let me find your peace today. Help me see you in the dream you have for me. Lord, I may not have a prophet at my door but I have you in my soul and I know that you have great plans for me. Keep me worthy and allow me to find comfort in my perceived drought. Help me see the flour and the oil in the turmoil of my soul.
