Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Elijah’s Caterers

The prophet Elijah had some interesting meal arrangements.  Arranged by God, of course:

Ravens delivered bread and meat to him as he hid out (from King Ahab) along a stream.  (1 Kings 17:2-6)  (I wonder what kind of meat it was…)

A poor widow facing starvation made bread every day for Elijah, herself and her son, using a tiny bit of flour and oil that miraculously kept appearing in her kitchen!  (1 Kings 17:16)

An angel fed him twice (angel food!) during a very long journey as he fled again from Ahab and Jezebel..  (1 Kings 19:3-8)

Amazing, isn’t it, how God took care of this man who risked his life to challenge a king who rebelled flagrantly against God and took the nation with him.  Are there any Elijahs among us today?
