Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 17:15


17:15 Many days - A long time, even above two years, before thefollowing event about her son happened. And surely the increase of herfaith to such a degree, as to enable her thus to deny herself and trustthe promise, was as great a miracle in the kingdom of grace, as theincrease of her oil in the kingdom of providence. Happy are they who canthus against hope believe and obey in hope.
