What If: I Stopped Fighting It?

"What If?" Series

April 3rd, 2016

Pastor Paul is preaching.
1 Kings 17:7-16

The widow in 1 Kings 17 needed a change.

Life, it seems, had not been kind to her, and try as she had, she and her only son were still on the brink of starvation. Whatever god or gods she had placed her trust in didn’t seem to care about her plight. That is until the God of Israel sent his prophet Elijah to her home. Despite her circumstances, Elijah came bearing no consumable gifts. But he did invite her to commit an act of faith that would re-open the channel for her to finally place her full trust in God. When the time comes when we’re finally ready to stop fighting God’s persistent call, our approach might be much the same. Committing one small step toward God can be all it takes to open the floodgates to his purpose and love.
