1 Kings 17:1-16 GNV
1 A prophet named Elijah, from Tishbe in
Gilead, said to King Ahab, “In the name of
the Lord, the living God of Israel, whom I
serve, I tell you that there will be no dew or
rain for the next two or three years until I say
so.”
2 Then the Lord said to Elijah,
3 “Leave this place and go east and hide
yourself near Cherith Brook, east of the
Jordan.
4 The brook will supply you with water to drink,
and I have commanded ravens to bring you
food there.”
5 Elijah obeyed the Lord’s command, and went
and stayed by Cherith Brook.
6 He drank water from the brook, and ravens
brought him bread and meat every morning
and every evening.
7 After a while the brook dried up because of
the lack of rain.
8 Then the Lord said to Elijah,
9 “Now go to the town of Zarephath, near
Sidon, and stay there. I have commanded a
widow who lives there to feed you.”
10 So Elijah went to Zarephath, and as he came
to the town gate, he saw a widow gathering
firewood. “Please bring me a drink of water,”
he said to her.
11 And as she was going to get it, he called out,
“And please bring me some bread, too.”
12 She answered, “By the living Lord your God I
swear that I don’t have any bread. All I have
is a handful of flour in a bowl and a bit of
olive oil in a jar. I came here to gather some
firewood to take back home and prepare
what little I have for my son and me. That will
be our last meal, and then we will starve to
death.”
13 “Don’t worry,” Elijah said to her. “Go on and
prepare your meal. But first make a small loaf
from what you have and bring it to me, and
then prepare the rest for you and your son.
14 For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel,
says: ‘The bowl will not run out of flour or the
jar run out of oil before the day that I, the
Lord, send rain.’ ”
15 The widow went and did as Elijah had told
her, and all of them had enough food for
many days.
16 As the Lord had promised through Elijah, the
bowl did not run out of flour nor did the jar
run out of oil.

Deuteronomy 28:12 GNV – He will send rain in
season from his rich storehouse in the sky and
bless all your work, so that you will lend to many
nations, but you will not have to borrow from any.
Galatians 5:16-17, 24 GNV
16 What I say is this: let the Spirit direct your lives,
and you will not satisfy the desires of the
human nature.
17 For what our human nature wants is opposed
to what the Spirit wants, and what the Spirit
wants is opposed to what our human nature
wants. These two are enemies, and this
means that you cannot do what you want to
do.
24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have
put to death their human nature with all its
