When there’s nothing left
Some biblical stories stay with believers because they make God’s loving provision so obvious. In a world that obscures God’s loving activity, we need this clarity as we head into 2023. This weekend, while we have everyone together, we’ll look at how God showed up to help people who had nothing left. Life is precarious. Unfortunate events can leave us in desperate situations. You only need to look around the city of Barrie to realize that some people literally struggle to survive every day. Under extreme pressure, we may be tempted to lose hope for deliverance and give up. And yet, we have clear indications in Scripture that God can turn a desperate situation around if we will choose to trust his promises to us. We’ll see God’s love for people who are in need play out in 1 Kings 17:8-24 as Elijah, the famous prophet of Israel, is sent to meet a widow and her son who no longer have enough food left to survive. And…if you have young children with you for the service, they’ll be able to follow along with illustrations as we read and learn together.

When there’s nothing left to offer,
God’s Word directs us,
while his power sustains us
so that our fears are overcome by his faithfulness.
