    Use a very small value resistor in series with your current. Use the OpAmp to measure the voltage across that current sensing resistor. Select OpAmp feedback for the volts-per-ampere ratio you need.

    See figure 3-9 in attached, as an example.

    Do you want to read the current or build a current source?
