2 Kings 4:3 “Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, [even] empty vessels; borrow not a few.”
2 Kings 4:3 “”Here’s what you do,” said Elisha. “Go up and down the street and borrow jugs and bowls from all your neighbors. And not just a few–all you can get.”
In one sense, Elisha was simply saying, “Woman, for you to breakout and breakthrough in life and destiny, there are certain things you need, go and borrow those qualities and wisdom from others”.
Elisha told the woman to go to her neighbours. Friends, the wisdom, inspiration, knowledge and understanding you need in life and destiny are located all around you even iin your neighbours. There is no island of wisdom anywhere.
The moment you think you’re more brilliant and superior to every other person around, you’re a colossal failure already. God created us to be interrelated. A bit of what I need is in you and vice versa. I’ve never met a man who is a professor on every field of human endeavour and I don’t think you have as well. We all have our area of expertise.
A medical doctor may be brilliant and smart but when his car develops a problem he’ll need to take it to a mechanics workshop for them to troubleshoot and repair it for him. But if he thinks because he’s smart and performs surgery on human beings and decided to open up his engine and operate, he’ll most assuredly damage the car beyond repairs.
Friend, what wisdom do you need for your next level? Hear what God is saying to you today, “Go and borrow vessels”. In our contemporary days, you can easily “borrow vessels” from books, teachers, instructors, your spiritual leader, mentors and other consultants.
The prophet told the woman to borrow from her neighbours. The word neighbour simply tells us that these vessels are close by. Just beside us and all around us.
