They brought the jars to the widow and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing.
In 2 Kings 4, things were so bad for this poor widow that creditors were coming to take her two sons as payment for her bills. When the prophet Elisha told her to get as many jars as possible and pour her little remaining oil in them, it didn’t make sense. But when she obeyed, the miracle happened and the oil kept flowing till every jar was full. She sold the oil, paid the creditors, and had plenty left over to live on.
Has God put a promise in your heart, but it hasn’t made sense. Perhaps the medical report hasn’t changed or your business hasn’t improved, and you can’t see how it can happen. Don’t talk yourself out of what you know God is telling you to do. If you obey, the miracle will follow. Don’t miss your miracle trying to reason it out. Faith makes provision for the miracle by being faithful and by believing when you don’t see any sign of it. God is going to show out in your life as you pour the oil.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the true and living God, and You reward those who honor and obey You. Thank You that my obedience can never earn Your blessing, but it can lead to it. I believe that as I am doing the right thing You will reward me with favor. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
