The Lord does the humanly impossible. He redeems the widow and the childless. He builds her gates of sparkling jewels and gives her walls of precious stones. It’s a real-life Cinderella story. What was needed to satisfy the righteous anger of God had been done, and there would be no more barriers to Him.
In fact, He has set a table before us and has extended us the invitation to come join Him at the feast. The readers of this message were faced with a choice: to stay where they were in unbelief or accept the invitation with no clarity for their next step.
Faith always involves letting go of security and control to do things God’s way. Remember when Peter walked on water (Matt. 14:28-30)? He had to get out of the boat. God is calling us from hunger to feast, but in answering this call, we are to leave our worldly ways of comfort and launch out into the adventures God has designed for His people. His ways are higher—will you believe and obey?
What is a specific area where you believe God is calling you to step out in faith? Pray for God to help your unbelief, and then take your next step.
