LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF 2 KINGS 3:17-18
"For thus saith the Lord, Ye shall not see wind, neither shall ye see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, that ye may drink, both ye, and your cattle, and your beasts."
18.And this is but a light thing in the sight of the Lord: he will deliver the Moabites also into your hand."
1.When God wants to do something He doesn't announce it. "I love the suspense." "lol". wow , Amen. You can just walk into a shop and He will say "hey son/daughter look at your would be husband/wife at the counter" . "Sitting at home thinking what next ? A call comes through , you have just been made the new MD of a company , you have always dreamed of working with " .He doesnt announce it . So be ready , that heart desire of yours is coming in the name of Jesus , Amen. Isaiah 64:4 (NIV)"Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him."
2. God is full of surprises . Get ready for yours in Jesus name , Amen. It usually comes when we are weary , tired and out , then all of a sudden from no where it happens. It will happen to you this season in the name of Jesus , Amen. Gal 6:9 (NIV) "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." The key is having a good attitude , while you wait. "lol" . It gets tiring at times , but is fun ,if you learn to just enjoy the wait . lol , hmm.
3.When God is training you to trust Him , He doesn,t give you signs . Is like walking on a tight rope with your eyes covered ."hmm", Thats what am going through right now , and I am like , Lord am going to fall , but I have this assurance of peace in my spirit , saying son trust me and keep walking . Am I am saying to someone today , just trust Him and keep walking . Amen. Isaiah 26:4 (NLT)"Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD God is the eternal Rock."
4.God specialises in the supernatural. 2 Kings 4:3-4 (NLT)"And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. 4 Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.” believe only and you shall see it come to pass !
5.God does not need human effort to work out your miracle for you .He can do it directly. Gen 22:13 (NLT)" Then Abraham looked up and saw a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So he took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering in place of his son."
6.He does what He pleases. He can choose to give you a sign like he did for Hezekiah and he can choose not to give you one . Don't define God !. Just open your heart out to him and let him do what he does best . "Miracles". Psalm 135:6 (NASB)"Whatever the LORD pleases, He does, In heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps."
7.When God says a thing , it is already done . He only brings it to our knowledge through scripture . Rev 21:6a (NIV) "He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. "
8.We always wonder how is God going to do this "thing" ? Whatever that "thing" is in your life , verse 18 is your reply .
9.You can only experience His goodness , when he sees you trust him. psalm 27:13 "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living."
10. The key finally is this "real faith is absolutely believing God's word to be true." Roms 3:4(NLT)"Of course not! Even if everyone else is a liar, God is true. As the Scriptures say about him, "You will be proved right in what you say, and you will win your case in court."
I PRAY FOR YOU ; MAY THE LORD UPROOT EVERY SPIRIT OF DOUBT IN YOUR LIFE TODAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS , AMEN.
