"By this time tomorrow, there will be cheap food in the market place". That was what Elisha said in 2 Kings 7:1. And in verse 18, the Bible says that what he spoke came to pass as he said it. But something amazing happened when he spoke those words; a highly esteemed counselor spoke doubting words, that "even if God opens the windows of heaven, can there be food by this time tomorrow?". He said that probably because he was in charge of food supplies to the people. And as at that time, it was impossible to get food from anywhere.
I perceive that one of the ways that believers will overthrow the wicked is by their spoken words. In Job 22:29, the Bible says "when men are cast down, then you shall say, there is a lifting up". That counselor must have noticed and said there cannot be food supply, but Elisha who also noticed said there shall be food supply. When the food supply came as Elisha said, the counselor died, he did not live to eat from the food supply. And that also means his position was taken by Elisha. Believers need to be confident in God; because in Num 14:28, He has promised to do as we say. Say what is right, even if people do not feel fine about it. Feelings will change when they begin to see signs.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; SYMPATHIZE WITH PEOPLE WITH POSITIVE WORDS. SOMETIMES PEOPLE DO NOT FEEL LOVED WHEN YOU SAY POSITIVE THINGS TO THEM, BUT AT THE LONG RUN, THEY WILL FEEL GOD. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
