I had email from Debbie Lincoln yesterday as they were in Colorado and heading into an area with out all the expected amenities.  That alone set me thinking about what are our expected amenities from God?  What do you expect from Him?  

Everyone has a different view of the Father and their own personal relationship. I do believe if He cares so tenderly for those little birds of the air, He cares for me.  When times get tough, He provides. It will not all come in one big chunk like the lottery, but it will be there, bit by bit and exactly what we need.  

Reading in the bible in 1 Kings, Chapter 17, it is so simply laid out.  Elijah has traveled to Zarephath and God told Elijah that a widow would care for him and feed him.  When he arrived he found the woman gathering sticks and he asked her for water.  When she brought him a drink, he asked her to bring him a bit of bread. She told him she had none, but she was gathering sticks to take home to cook for her and her son.  She told him she had no cakes and only a handful of meal and a tiny bit of oil.  Elijah told her not to fear and go home and make him cake from what she did have. Then she could make some more for herself and her son.  He told her God was instructing this; she did as Elijah said and fed him and her son for many days.  The meal in the barrel never ran out and the oil did not fail.   A few weeks later, the son fell deathly ill and the woman cried to Elijah for help.  Elijah took the boy from her and carried him to the place where he was staying and laid the boy in his bed and prayed to God to allow the boy to live.  The Father returned the boy's soul to his body and he revived immediately.  Elijah took him back to his mother and she was sure then that Elijah was a man of God and that  his word was indeed God's word.

I think often it is easy to pray and ask for something that is not in His plan.  I do believe the trust comes in acceptance of what is truly needed at that moment and not what is needed tomorrow. 
He will revive you today and restore you with abundance that will not run out... believe and it will be as you need it.


"And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.
 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth"  1 Kings 17:12-14
