King 17:17:Now it came about after these things that the son of the woman, the mistress of the house, became sick; and his sickness was so severe that there was no breath left in him.”

Note: You need to read yesterday’s message to understand today’s subject.

Now it came about after these things:  AFTER THE OVERFLOW…

After the overflow of flour and oil in the life of the widow, suddenly her son died and she was not able to face the loss.  She grumbled at Elijah the prophet who had actually blessed her and we find her totally out of control.  The lesson we learn today: we need to be careful and prayerful always because we do not know when calamity would strike us.  People tend to miss and skip early morning prayer groups quoting, “ yesterday we had a birthday party, so still we have a hangover, we need rest..” What happens if something happens suddenly? I was admitted in the ICU midnight on my birthday with severe abdomen pain, it was Saturday and actually I had  to preach the next day at Church, while I was in the ICU my husband sat in the reception hall preparing for the next day Sunday service.  Caveat! Apostle Paul said:” pray without ceasing..” 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

Listen! Are you just traumatized and dumbstruck by the avalanche of sudden problems that has come upon you and you wonder ‘hey, why me and why does it all come at one stroke?’ It happens. Just when we needed transport both the bike and the car were under repairs, the servant was away, both the teachers working in our school quit, all this happens on one single day, just when you need a hug and comforting word, people behave nastily with you, are you going through such problems then this message is for you.  Sudden calamities will jump on us, we need to be prepared friend, are you listening? Dear friends, that’s one reason we need to be equipped with the knowledge of the Bible which would refresh us and comfort us with God’s promises and teach us to endure the heat and go through the problems instead of rebelling and complaining.
