2 Kings 4:42-44 (ESV)
42 A man came from Baal-shalishah, bringing the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley and fresh ears of grain in his sack. And Elisha said, “Give to the men, that they may eat.” 43 But his servant said, “How can I set this before a hundred men?” So he repeated, “Give them to the men, that they may eat, for thus says the Lord, ‘They shall eat and have some left.’” 44 So he set it before them. And they ate and had some left, according to the word of the Lord.
Was there ever a time in your life when you felt as if a blessing
was beyond anything you could imagine, when you thought
there would be things to appreciate, but you’re overwhelmed
with love and appreciation? I believe that is how the people felt
in today’s reading from 2 Kings.
We are reminded daily of all the promises God has kept to us.
We may not always get exactly what we ask for, but we always
get what we need. God knows exactly what we are praying for
before we even think of it ourselves. Every single day we are
gifted with an abundance of blessings and we should praise the
Lord for everything we have.
Heavenly Father, thank you for everything you provide for me
and for always keeping your promise. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
