Scripture Text: II Kings 4:1-4,7
1 "Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
2 "And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
Desperate? It's Already Available
As we read the scripture we find this lady wanted the prophet to do something for her. To help her out of her dilemma. Some kind of blessing to help her out of her mess.
This woman was desperate she was looking for a blessing, a way out of her problem, but she needed more than just a blessing, she needed more than a few dollars, she needed a life style change, she needed a turn around.
If there is one thing that I know about God it is that he is in the business of turning things around. What the Man of God really said to her was: It's already in the house.
This woman was desperate: The bible says, "Now there cried." This most likely means that she had reached what she considered the critical point, if she was like most of us she had tried everything she could think of but nothing changed.
Sometimes desperation is a good thing.
Desperation pushes you to do things you wouldn't normally do.
Desperation pushes you past your comfort zone.
Desperate people do desperate things.
By the time people reach desperation they're willing to try anything.
Desperation is the breeding ground for miracles.
The prophet didn't give her anything except a Word
What do you have in the House? What do you have already?
She underestimated what she had in the house: She said (nothing except
a pot of oil)
There's a miracle in the House:
Then he said, "Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours,
even empty vessels; borrow (not a few)."
Follow the directions:
If this woman was like us, most of the time all we’re really concerned
with is to get out of trouble, to get out debt, get out of a bad relationship,
get out of pain, get out of conflict. We just want relief.
When we get desperate, something is going to happen.
When we get desperate we're at the turning point.
When we get desperate we're going to get a fresh revelation of the glory
The word of the Lord to us today is the same as it was to her.
It's already in the house!!
