The Word for Today

What Do You Have?

'What do you have in your house?' 2 Kings 4:2 NIV


When you pray, God can answer in two ways:

(1) He can use somebody you know. Who do you know? Who knows what you don’t know? Jesus said, ‘Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.’ (Luke 6:38 NIV) Note: ‘given to you’. When God blesses you, He often gives His blessing through people. So who should you be listening to and walking with? ‘He who walks with wise men will be wise.’ (Proverbs 13:20 NKJV) Observe the word ‘walks’. Wisdom comes when you’re moving forward, not resting on your laurels. You must be teachable, discerning, relational, and responsive.

(2) He can use something you have. In 2 Kings 4 a minister’s wife was in trouble. Her husband had died, the bills were piling up and the creditors took her sons to work off the debt. When she turned to the prophet Elisha for help, he asked her, ‘What do you have in your house?’ She answered, ‘Just a little pot of oil.’ He told her to find every empty pot she could and to start pouring oil into them. He reassured her the oil would flow until she had enough to pay off her debts and live well. (2 Kings 4:3–7) With God you always have enough to create what you need! He can do ‘immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.’ (Ephesians 3:20 NIV) Where’s the power? Within you! Your resources are in your gifting, your tenacity, your relationships and your connection to God. So the word for you today is: What do you have?
