Then the LORD said to Elijah, “Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you.” --1 Kings 17:8-9 (NLT)

Clearly, God sent Elijah to this particular widow...
There were many needy widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the heavens were closed for three and a half years, and a severe famine devastated the land. Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them. He was sent instead to a foreigner—a widow of Zarephath in the land of Sidon.                                                    --Luke 4:25-26 (NLT)

God placed Elijah in this specific situation for a purpose...
Everything becomes something God uses to prepare me if I trust Him completely
