When Leaders Are Down To Their Last Jar
“When Leaders are Obedient, Provisions for Their Calling Never Run Out”

“For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail.… And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah and she, and he, and her house did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which He spake by Elijah.”

Featured Scripture: 1 Kings 17:14–16
Background Scripture: 1 Kings 17:1–17

Our Prayer: Lord God, we praise You for Your power to bring miracles into our lives. We thank You for Elijah and for an obedient widow.

Like Elijah, we pray that our jars will never run out as we serve You. Amen.
