"The barrel of meal wasted not"

"Supply comes from God, Spirit, and therefore it is spiritual and infinite"

When during a period of drought the prophet Elijah met a woman gathering wood in order to prepare what she felt would be a last meal for her son and herself, he instructed her to prepare some food for him first. He assured her that if she would do this, God had promised that her supply would be sufficient until the drought ended. The woman did as Elijah told her, "and the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the Lord" (I Kings 17:16).
