Elijah and Elisha were Old Testament prophets that are often confused for one another. Their names and their ministries were similar and they lived in the same time period; Elisha was actually a student of Elijah. Two stories from 1st and 2nd Kings involved widows miraculously blessed by these two prophets. The details are different and we might wonder why God worked differently in each case. The thing is, it’s the same God. That same God, who knows and understands each heart and each need, is working in our lives today.
