My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of, 2 Kings 4:6 “Now it came to pass when the vessels were full that she said, to her son, “Bring me another vessel.“And he said, to her there is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above context we read about the incident of a widow who was the wife of a prophet. The Prophet had left behind a huge debt and she had to pay back a large sum of money. The creditors often troubled her and threatened her that he would take away her sons if she failed to pay back the dues. She was rather scared of them and she did not wish to part her two sons from her. She was going through a painful trouble. So she ran to the prophet Elisha and cried out to him for help. So Elisha said to her, “What do you have in the house? The woman replied that she had nothing other than a jar of oil with her. Then he said to her “ Go borrow vessels from everywhere. From all your neighbours-empty vessels, do not gather just a few.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Prophet Elisha told her that once she collected all the vessels, she should shut the door behind her and her sons, then pour it into all the vessels, and set aside the full ones. Now it came to pass when the vessels were full that she said to her son, “Bring me another vessel.” “And he said, to her there is not another vessel.” So the oil ceased. ’ The oil stopped pouring out until all the vessels in the village had been filled with oil. Then she went and told the man of God that she had filled all the vessels that she had borrowed. And he said, “Now go and sell the oil and pay your debt. And you and your sons live on the rest.” Just as she was directed she sold the oil and paid the debts. Thus she saved her two sons from the creditors cruel hands. She not only cleared the debts but also provided for her sons and their future.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God is going to bless you with such kind of blessing. God is going to bless you with overflowing blessing. She approached the man of God when she was in a poor state of life. God solved the problem of the widow. And made her a prosperous woman. In the same way God will solve all your problems if you approach God in a humble manner. Nothing is too hard for the Lord to do. You too like the widow may be facing financial crisis. You may have to pay back your creditor huge sum of money. Or maybe you are in a tight corner situation because of some misunderstanding with your spouse. Or maybe you are going through a tough period in your work spot because of your boss. Whatever situation you may be going through God is able to deliver you, and set you free. God wants to bring an end to all your problems. He will perform a miracle for you. He spoke and it was done .He commanded and it stood fast. Halleluiah.! Our God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think or pray. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank you for helping the widow clear off her debts and provide for the future of her sons. Help us also to pay off our debts and live in peace and harmony. Give us the strength to overcome all problems that crop up in our life. Bring an end to all our problems and help us see better days in life.
