1 Kings 17:13-16
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.
There are two principles in operation here, faith and obedience. If we notice the scripture does not say that the Lord filled the woman with faith so she could be obedient or that her obedience built her faith. She just did what she heard the Prophet say and walked in faith and obedience together to eat for "many days". It truly started a new season in her life and stored up a blessings for the future.
