WHAT DO YOU HAVE?
“What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” (II Kings 4:2).
The wife of a deceased prophet came to Elisha, the man of God to find solutions to her problems. The burden of her debts was so huge and she was helpless. The debtor had come to make her children slaves. In that critical situation, the man of God asked her what he should do for her and what she had in her house.
Dear children of God, God comes near you today with love and asks what He should do for you. When you openheartedly seek things from him, he will perfect all you lack. He will comfort you wiping your tears. By performing a miracle, He will create a new turn in your life. “He does great things past finding out, yes, wonders without number” (Job 9:10). He will definitely do a miracle for you.
That widow went on wailing her shortfalls repeatedly. It is true she had so many needs but even in the midst of such a situation, she had something. That is the pot of oil. The pot indicates the body and the oil indicates the fullness of the Holy Spirit. In the pot which is your body, you have the glorious Holy Spirit as a priceless treasure (I Peter 4:14). Not only that. Christ is in you as the hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). When you make use of the power of the Holy Spirit, all your shortfalls will be made good.
Elisha, the prophet told her, "Go and borrow all the empty vessels from your neighbours, pour the oil in all the vessels and all the vessels will be filled, sell the oil, pay your debt and you and your sons make a living with the oil." Accordingly, God performed a miracle.
Dear children of God, the anointment in you could be poured into any number of vessels and God is powerful to make all the vessels overflow. There are millions of empty vessels in India. God has given you the power to fill all of them
It is for this, He makes your cup overflow (Psalms 23:5). If the vessel which is your heart is filled with oil, it is useful to you alone. But when it is in an overflowing condition, it is useful to the whole nation.
To meditate: “But my horn you have exalted like a wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil” (Psalms 92:10).
