>Kevin gave a great devo today from 1 Kings 17. He noted how God was already working in the life of the widow of Zeraphath (who was outside the covenant people). Elijah went to her, and after meeting her needs, she exclaimed, “now I know that you are a man of God and that the words coming out of you are surely from God.” What a beautiful expression of how we must respond to God’s initiative! As well, what a powerful observation Kevin made that God not only met the needs of the widow and her son, but the prophet as well.
Let’s pray that CF becomes a church with that kind of prophetic ministry.
- Praise God that he is already at work in our local communities (neighborhoods, workplaces, schools, parks, stores, restaurants, etc).
- Pray that God gives us a greater awareness of where he is at work and a vision/obedience to participate.
- Pray for God to give us the strength and humility to love all people like he loves us.
- Many families in the community are struggling to put food on the table – Ask God to provide for them.
- Local schools are in great need of people to help mentor/tutor young people – Ask God to raise up an army of mentors.
- Ask God to show you how you could use the resources and abilities he has given you to bless others around you who are in need.
