FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 17:8-16 (KJV)
8 And the word of the Lord came unto him, saying,
9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
11 And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand.
12 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.
13 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.
14 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.
15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days.
16 And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Elijah.
MEMORY VERSE: “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 17:14
The Lord God of Elijah is the Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent God.

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
I DECREE THAT TODAY, THE SAME GOD, WHO SUPPLIED THE NEEDS OF ELIJAH AND THE WIDOW OF ZAREPHATH DURING FAMINE, WILL SUPPLY ALL YOUR NEEDS EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
MFM Devotional For Today MESSAGE:
Beloved, let us look further into why you need to connect to the God of Elijah. The God of Elijah is the God that answers by fire. He is the God of all possibilities. He confirms the word of His servant and performs the counsel of His messengers (Isaiah 44:26). By His Spirit and anointing, Elijah decreed that there would be neither rain nor dew except at his word. The God of Elijah established the decree. For three and half years, the whole nation suffered famine and drought. King Ahab and his wife, Jezebel, were helpless and had to look for Elijah to open the heavens for rain. Such is the awesome power and authority of the Lord God of Elijah. Beloved, if you have faith in the Lord God of Elijah, you will be a terror to the enemy and his kingdom. Besides, you will rule and prosper in the midst of your enemies (Psalm 110:2b). Fire symbolises God’s presence and sometimes, His judgement. The God that answers by fire is the God that never fails.
In addition, the Lord God of Elijah provides for His children, even during famine. He exempted Elijah, His servant, from hunger, thirst and hardship that befell the whole nation. He told him to go to the brook of Cherith (which He had kept from drying up). There Elijah got regular supply of water and a raven (commanded by God) brought him food twice a day. This proves that Elijah’s God is the God of miraculous supplies. When the brook dried up, God told Elijah to go to Zarephath and that He had commanded a widow there to feed him. No matter the downturn and recession in the global economy, the hardship people are facing in your nation or your organisation, the God of providence will supernaturally supply your needs: food, finance, clothing, shelter and all. All you need is to believe Him and call upon Him.
Moreover, the God of Elijah helps His children to succeed and finish well. Elijah did not only finish well, he also did not taste death but was transported to heaven by a chariot of fire in a whirlwind. God rewarded his faithfulness and will reward yours too!
- O God that answereth by fire, appear and make me a terror to wicked and idolatrous rulers, in the name of Jesus.
- I declare that God is my sufficiency, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, as You helped Elijah to succeed and finish well, help me to succeed and finish well, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, arise and use me for Your glory, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, set me apart for Your use, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, multiply Your grace and peace towards me, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, by Your mercy, make me Your purpose partner in these last days, in the name of Jesus.
