What is in your house? What is in your hand?

God is your provider, fear not what tomorrow will bring, instead hope in Him (Psalm 39:7).

Word of Encouragement…

Elisha and the Widow’s Oil (2 Kings 4:1-7)

The story is told in 2 Kings 4:1-7 about Elisha and the Widow’s Oil. Accordingly, the widow went to Elisha and told him that her husband was one of his servants, and she had no money to pay her creditor who was coming to take away her two sons to be his slaves. Elisha asked her what she had in her house. She told him nothing except a jar of oil. He told her to borrow many vessels from her neighbors, then go in her house with her sons, shut the door behind her, and pour the oil. She obeyed and when the vessels were full, she told her son to bring another one. However, he told her that none was left, at that moment the oil stopped flowing. She went out and told Elijah and he instructed her to sell the oil, pay her debt and live on the rest. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in job losses, financial challenges, and increased debts for many people. Some people are wondering if they will have their house or car at the end of 2021. While others are trying to find creative ways to earn an income to purchase groceries. Irrespective of your circumstances, God has seen your tears and heard your concerns. He is looking at you right now and asking the questions, “What do you have in your house? What do you have in your hand?” I implore you to search your mind, look around your house, ask the Holy Spirit to give you insight, then answer the questions.

God has already provided the solution to your financial problems. Nonetheless, sometimes it is revealed through prayer or prayer and fasting. And so, I encourage you to seek the Lord through these mediums so that you will have a clear sense of direction. He is loving and faithful, and will always meet your needs (Philippians 4:19).  

I pray that you will follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, as you use your abilities and resources to meet your needs.  

Peace be unto you.
