As we continue on our series from 1-2 Kings, “The Tale of Two Thrones”, we come across an unlikely heroine. She’s broke, she’s lost her family, she’s not from the right people, she’s starving and she’s hopeless. Yet God chooses her. We’re going to ask why. We’ll see too that she and her son are given life. Just as I look out on my little garden this morning, all my plants - in fact all the grass and trees we see in Dubai - rely on those little black hoses of irrigation for life, we’ll be reminded in 1 Kings 17 that it’s God who brings life through His Word. Without it we’re in drought, with His Word we’re alive!
