There is Resurrection Power available to those who believe. In 1 Kings 17, we read the story of how the widow, who was caring for Elijah, was struck by an unspeakable tragedy. In verses 17-23, her son dies, but miraculously, in answer to prayer, God resurrects the boy. We see similar miracles in the ministry of Jesus where he heals a 12 year old girl in Mark chapter 5. And also in Luke 7, Jesus was moved with compassion when he saw a widow at the funeral procession for her son; He immediately raised the boy from the dead. These miracles are the evidence of the power and authority we as believers have in Christ. In verse 24 of 1 Kings 17, the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the Lord from your mouth is the truth."
