2 Kings 6: 1 - 4 'And the sons of the prophets said to Elisha, see now, the place where we dwell with you is too small for us. Please, let us go to the Jordan, and let every man take a beam from there and let us make there a place where we may dwell. So he answered Go. Then one said, please consent to go with your servants. And he answered, I will go.
Let me share with you what happened in the passage above.
1. The sons of the prophet had been enduring accommodation challenges. They probably had a meeting and decided to do something about it. Please stop enduring, its time to cry out for help.
2. It was clear to them that urgent action must be taken. Somebody must take some actions for there to be a change. They cannot afford to be sleeping and waking up in the same accommodation and expect to sleep soundly.
3. At the meeting, they actually agreed to seek for the prophet's assistance. Telling the prophet about their plan wasn't the real deal. The real deal was for Elisha to accompany them.
4. Thank God one of them finally took the bold step and pleaded - please consent to go with us. That was a crucial moment. And he said. I will go.
The first step to your turn around is a new vision, its your ability to see. We discussed this in detail yesterday. The Lord will open your eyes to see. David prayed open thou my eyes that I may behold wondrous things out of your word.
Beloved, however, it is not enough to see! You also need to know how to navigate the path to your breakthroughs.
When two angels appeared to Abraham casually at Mamre; something told him these are not casual visitors. (Gen 18). I pray for you - you will not miss your next encounter in Jesus Name, Amen. Abraham saw and took advantage of the encounter and got Isaac. A reader of this article is about to have an encounter that will terminate weeping and open the floodgate of laughters and rejoicing.
On the road to Emmaus, two (2) disciples encountered Jesus unknowingly and even had time to walk with him - similar to God walking with Adam and Even in the garden. However, in Luke 24: 28 - 35. They witnessed signs and wonders and I perceive you are about to witness same now. How?
Jesus indicated he would be continuing his journey alone but they constrained him to stay 'saying abide with us'. The miracle Himself was about to leave them without an encounter until they pleaded - abide with us. That was a crucial moment. Ah, the Lord did not pass them by, He will not pass you by again in Jesus Name.
Finally, let's look @ Lot and the Angel that delivered him from the destruction @ Sodom. Gen 19; 1 - 3. The angels who had come to destroy Sodom were prepared to sleep at the Open square but Lot pleaded and insisted until they came under his roof.
Beloved, have you been persisted enough on that issue of life? We might have missed some crucial moments in the past but this is another opportunity.
Lot insisted; Abraham prevailed: the disciples on the road to Emmas succeeded. The sons of the prophet got Elisha to travel with them. Jesus was personally invited to the wedding at Cana of Galilee.
What are you waiting for? Jesus came to give you a turn around. Its your crucial moment for signs and wonders.
Seize the moment.
Place a demand upon the Lord Now!!!
Shalom and Blessings!!!
