Daily Bible reading

1 Kings 17-18
Psalms 13-14

I was reading The Student Bible today and it made a great point. I've always associated  the widow with having great faith, but what about Elijah? He definitely had to have faith to trust a poor woman with his upkeep. He knew it was really God providing for him and not the poor widow. That is faith! How many times do we think our husbands (if you want to become a stay at home wife) can't provide the fiances we need? We think oh it's easy for Elijah to have faith, but if you really think of it in context then it should be easy for us to have faith in our husband's ability to provide for us, because ultimately it's God who will provide.  Not so easy sometimes, right? "What is impossible with man is possible with God." (Luke 18:29)
