2 Kings 4:4 “And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.”
I want us to consider carefully another in the series of instructions Elisha gave to the widow woman. He asked her to pour out into all the empty borrowed vessels.
To me, this looks like the most absurd instruction one can be given. It just doesn’t seem to add up. How do you ask a “sane man or woman” to take a small jar and pour out into not just one or two but several empty vessels?
This is the law of faith and that’s where the miracle starts. Until you’re ready to pour out you’ll remain small. The problem with many people is that they lacked the boldness to release what has been deposited into them.
Friend, there are a lot of empty vessels out there that needs filling but the issue is that you feel what you have is too small for you talk more of given out to others.
Remember the account of Elijah:
1 Kings 17:12 “And she said, [As] the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I [am] gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.”
1 Kings 17:13 “And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go [and] do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring [it] unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.”
Elisha was certainly flowing in the spirit of Elijah. They both gave similar instructions to these widows. A widow is a woman who has lost her husband.
Beloved, the truth is that we are all looking for a miracle in one area of our lives and this connects us with these women. Perhaps what you’re looking for is even traceable to something precious that you have lost.
To be continued…
