Read 2 Kings chapter 7

VERSE:

2 Kings 7:2–The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if the Lord should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?” “You will see it with your own eyes, “answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!”

TRUTH:

The people of Israel were in a desperate situation. They called on Elisha and he shared with them that God’s deliverance was coming. However, this officer was skeptical and doubtful. When God promises us deliverance, or when we read in His Word that He is able to save us, deliver us, help us, etc, do we believe it? Do we trust in God enough to have faith that He will do what He has promised? This officer didn’t and while he got to see the answer to prayer, he was killed before he could experience any of it. God will always prove Himself faithful, but whether we experience any of that blessing depends on us. Will we be doubtful of what God can do, or will we have faith in Him.

RESPONSE:

Father, I know that You are able to do anything You want in any way that You want. I will trust in You and have faith that You are moving things in the direction that You desire to give You the most glory. I want to participate in Your glory, in whatever way You see fit, and I believe that You can do it in my life and in the situations that I am facing right now.
