“9. Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. 12. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth…” (1 Kings 17: 9, 12)


That is the Focal Scripture of God’s Standard Devotional today.

In our Focal Scripture, the widow of Zarephath spoke about the Lord.

She was in a pagan nation, but she knew about the Lord. Instead of knowing the pagan idols that others around her probably knew, she knew about the Lord.

She had a higher knowledge of God, and she later enjoyed the miracle of abundance through Elijah.

Friends, seek a higher knowledge of God.

Know Him deeper and closely.

Know God for the might in Him and the might He is able to manifest in you and through you;

know God as the one who is able to nullify every doctor’s report that is not in your favour;

know God as the One who can give you abundance despite the economic recession you are in.

A higher knowledge of God is the pathway to a higher life.

When others want to give up, don’t give up; remind yourself that your Redeemer lives.

When there is no hope, remain hopeful in God.

When the battles of life rage, be still and know that He is God and that He is in charge at all levels.

When you can’t find what you need in your environment, dig deep into God and you’ll find all you need.

The widow of Zarephath knew the Lord, and the Lord brought her in contact with Elijah, and that changed her story.

Your deeper knowledge of God will turn things around in your life.

As you know God more and more, you will see His acts more and more.

The widow of Zarephath lived among pagans and that may have made it difficult for her to know God, but she knew God all the same.

There isn’t any worthy excuse why you won’t know God more. Seek God and you shall live.

James 4 vs. 8 says: “Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you…”.

Pray With Me: Lord, help me to know You more, in Jesus’ name!
