WHAT DO WE DO IN TIMES OF TROUBLE? April 27, 2015

hands and ible

What do we do in those hard times in our lives when it looks like we have lost everything and we can’t see how the circumstance will ever turn around for our good???

I am going to take you to a story today and if you can really understand what happened here and how to apply it to your life, change is on the way!!!

2 Kings 4 King James Version (KJV)

Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the Lord: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.

And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.

Here we see this widow woman was at the end of her rope, her husband had died and she was about to lose her sons…. She needed something to happen that would change her situation….

I want you to see two very important things that we can learn from this story.

First I want to see if you can related to ths womans situation, she is in the depth of despair and there doen’t seem to be anything that she can do that would change the situation. Have you been there, or maybe you are there right now.. a place where you feel totally helpless to bring forth the change that you so desparately need at this time in your life.

#1 There was a person for her to run to that could give her the supernatural directions she needed.

Boy if we can truly understand this, we will have a KEY that will change our lives forever.

I am speaking today to believers, those that know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, this woman that we are talking about was married to a man who was serving and fearing God and I believe that she also love, served and feared God. When she was but in this situation, she CRIED out to the Prophet Elisha and told him her situation… Well my friends, we have someone even greater to CRY out to in our time of need and we have answers to many of our situations written in black and white, right before our eyes.

Jeremiah 33 King James Version (KJV)

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Psalm 121 King James Version (KJV)

121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

Psalm 119:105-112King James Version (KJV)

105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

I believe that the answer to every situation that we are going through can be found by calling out to our Father in Heaven, asking for his direction and guidance and searching His word for the answer!!!

That is Key one that this widow woman did, she searched out help from the one that she KNEW and Believed would have the answers…

Do you truly know and believe in your heart that God is and has the answer to every problem you are facing? If you are there my friend you are close to our answer!! He is the answer and he has the SPECIFIC instructions for you…

Lets go back to the story in 2 kings 4 vs 3-4 

2 Kings 4 King James Version (KJV)

Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.

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.

What??? Did I hear you correctly ..I have this pot of oil and I am suppose to go to my neighbors and borrow A LOT of containers…. I only have a little oil, why do I need a lot of containers…  This story doesn’t tell of a reaction like that, it tells of someone who believed what he said and went and did it, DOUBTING nothing!!!

There are many of Gods instructions that are written down for us, but because they don’t make sense to our natural way of thinking we don’t act upon what he has told us, cause we doubt. We are looking for logical and natural solutions to our problems, instead of doing it Gods way and believing for the supernatural promises of God to manifest.

A couple examples come to mind

#1 Tithing… Tithing makes no sense to your natural mind. If I am in lack how does tithing 10% of all my income help my problem of lack…

Malachi 3

Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.

Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts.

It may not make sense to your brain, but it is GODS DIRECTION AND IT WORKS

The other examples that comes to mind is what God says about forgiveness and Love

Matthew 6:15King James Version (KJV)

15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Matthew 5:44King James Version (KJV)

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

God did not say we would understand everything we are to do, He even told us, His ways are not our ways…. But I promise you today, Gods word is true and when you will hear and obey it, you wil find the solution to any situation you are going thru

Lets finish up with the end of our story

2 Kings 4 King James Version (KJV)

Verses 5-7

So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.

And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.

Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

If you follow the directions of Gods word, you too can experience the supernatural provision, love, and forgiveness of the Father in Heaven…

You have a part to do…

Key 1 Get directions from God how to handle your situation from His Word

Key 2 Do whatever He says!

God Bless you
