I was going through a difficult time today, and have been for a while, and praise came to my heart, someplace where I have been dry.
It came to me, to bake the Lord a little cake first.
Just like the woman did for the Prophet.
To bake the Lord a little cake with what we have inside, from Him, first. With all we have, make that cake for Him of praise.
We can know that the meal will not waste, neither will the cruise of oil fail, because we know that the Lord will cause it to continue, as we give what little we have in us in those times of dryness or hardship or dispair.
We first, bake the Lord, a little cake of praise, knowing that it will continue divinely by Him. Giving to Him, first, all that is in us of praise and thankfulness.
We know He will care for us and has no lack.
The little cruise will continue, the meal will continue, and the Lord promises us that He will take care of us. We just need to remember to bake the little cake first, for Him.
Sincerely, Kathleen Angell

This reminds me of one of grandma's saying 'God will provide'. Even when you can't see the opening, you'll never go to sleep hungry because 'He will always provide'. You'll never have to wonder where tomorrows meal will come from because He just keeps on giving...
As long as we put God first, He will take care of us by providing what we need.
My husband just got through relating a situation of a missionary who suffered much, and they were without food. The little girl kept mentioning that she was hungry, and the daddy just said, let us wait see what Jesus will bring us. And along came the money divinely. When my own children were little, and we ran out of food, I ask them to set the table the Lord would provide. And after it was set, the phone rang, and the lady next door who did not know our circumstances, but was moved by the Lord and a precious woman, said, I have overcooked and have no room in the freezer, please help me and come get some of this. So the hot meal was provided right there, on the table, and it was very good. My friend, a missionary and the daughter of a missionary, said they were going to a meeting, and ran out of gas, and as they pulled into a place, an angel met them with gas and said, what took you so long? That is so our Jesus. Whether in suffering, or whatever we go through, He is a real and present Savior that cares.
Love to you Janice, you are a dear and precious worker in God's field and sister. Kathy
