Called To The One

Luke 4:25-26 "But I tell you truly, many widows were in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout the land; but to none of them Elijah was sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow."

There were many poor widows in Elijah's time

He was only sent to one which seemed like a crime

A time of severe famine and horrible drought

But the road to Zarephath was his only route

Those around him could have said he was wasting his call

Because he only went to one and not to them all

They could have said Elijah forsook God's plan

They could have said Elijah only followed man

Three and a half long years seemed like a total waste

Men must have thought this prophet had been replaced

Maybe other old "prophets" thought he was done

Yet in that time he raised to life the widow's son

His prophetic ministry was not well funded

He only ministered to one and not the hundreds

Others could have spoke and said he had no love

But he had his marching orders from above

There are hidden Elijahs that will one day come forth

They will arise from the south and arise from the north

These humble men and women still drink from the well

And when they arise they will go and shake Hell

But there is a common trap when success slumbers

We can easily get focused only on the numbers

You may not see much fruit. You may want to run

But maybe like Elijah you are called to the one
