2 Kings 7:1-2. But Elisha said, “Hear the word of the Lord; thus says the Lord, Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.” Then the captain on whose hand the king leaned said to the man of God, “If the Lord himself should make windows in heaven, could this thing be?” But he said, “You shall see it with your own eyes, but you shall not eat of it.”
Your situation could turn around in a night! These people were starving because they were besieged on every side and yet Elisha told them it would all change so dramatically overnight that food would be sold at ridiculously low prices!
No matter where you are or what you are facing you need to believe that God will come through as He has promised and it may come overnight! Hold on to your faith in Him and His faithfulness! Over and over in the Bible, we see times, when situations changed in an instant, and God showed His mighty hand and faithfulness to those who believed and were faithful. Keep holding on and keep serving Him as you wait on Him! Look at Joseph, he went to prison for things he never did and then low and behold, he went from the prison to be the 2nd in Command, right under Pharaoh! You just never know how close you are to that answer you have been waiting for, and like Joseph, your answer may be beyond what you were looking for! Joseph wanted out of prison and God wanted him to be the leader of the land. Don’t lose hope now, it may be right around the bend!
God is for you! He loves you and He wants to help you get through to the other side and He wants you to come through better than you were before! Trust Him, follow Him, and don’t let go of His promises! Trust Him that truly His best is yet to come!
