We can say without a doubt that, indeed, God’s word to you is the best tool you can use to determine the seasons of your life. We previously examined that, He will speak to you directly or reveal Himself through the pages of scriptures. Amen! Let’s take this a step further. It is imperative to remain vigilant in order to recognize the vessels through which God will use to minister to us. We see this in the life of Elijah and the widow of Zarephath. The Lord spoke to the widow through Elijah. Listen to what scriptures have to say;
1 Kings 17:13-14 (NKJV)
And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’”
1 Kings 17:16 (NKJV)
The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.
It is noteworthy that,
1) God did not speak to the widow through scriptures
2) God did not speak to the widow directly
3) God spoke to the widow through a vessel – the prophet Elijah.
Vigilance is very much required when it comes to allowing the word to determine the seasons of our life. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you on this journey. He is your helper. Be vigilant to recognize and know when God is using a vessel to bring His word to you. Amen!
