On TiMe


In the book of 2 Kings 4:1, the bible talks about a widow prophet's wife, who cried out to Elisha the Prophet; because a creditor was threatening to take away her 2 children and making them his slaves because she owned him money. Now the Prophet Elisha asked her what did she have in her home and she replied just a jar full of oil(2 Kings 4:2).

You know something, when you think that "ALL" isn't enough, that's when God teaches you a lesson in Faith(Hebrews 11:1). Now, here's what the Prophet Elisha told the widow, go and borrow as many empty containers from your neighbors(2 Kings 4:3). Then go into your home with your 2 sons and pour the oil in all those jars(2 Kings 4:4). After she filled the jars, she continued to tell her 2 sons to bring her more containers; however the 2 young boys told her that they didn't have anymore(2 Kings 4:6).

The widow told Elisha the man of God that she did what he said, then Elisha told her to go and sell the oil, pay your debt and you & your 2 sons can live in peace(2 Kings 4:7). What the Lord is trying to each you is that when you think your at the end of your rope, that's when our Heavenly Father sends you a person or resource to get out of the bottomless pit ... #Something2Ponder, Instead of giving up!
