“Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had restored to life,
“Go away with your family and stay for a while wherever you can,
because the Lord has decreed a famine in the land that will last seven
The woman proceeded to do as the man of God said. She and her family
went away and stayed in the land of the Philistines seven years.”
2 Kings 8:1, 2
God’s word is so amazing. I love it and the lessons it teaches.
Before I continue I want to ask you something,
Do you believe Yeshua is directing your every step?
Has He planned your every step?
I strongly believe He knows and has planned our every step.
Even in the difficult times, He is directing us and is very much
There is nothing that happens in our lives that throws Him off guard.
Let’s take a look at the woman’s story for a bit. The man of God told her
to move to another land with her family because a famine was coming
to her homeland. The famine would last for seven years!
Getting up and going is no easy thing. She had to sell everything she had.
She had to make a new life in a foreign land which wasn’t easy.
What a risk she took right! There were so many things that could have gone
wrong but God I believe was directing her every step. He knew exactly
what was happening with her and had planned what would happen to her
because of her obedience.
Look at what happened to her,
“At the end of the seven years she came back from the land of the Philistines
and went to appeal to the king for her house and land.
The king was talking to Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, and said ,
Tell me about all the great things Elisha has done.
Just as Gehazi was telling the king how Elisha had restored the dead to life,
the woman whose son Elisha had brought back to life came to appeal to the
king for her house and land.
Gehazi said, “This is the woman, my Lord the king, and this is her son whom
Elisha restored to life.”
2 Kings 8:3-5 (emphasis mine)
That was no coincidence! How did she go to the king at the exact time Gehazi was telling
him about how Elisha raised her son from death to life?? There is no way she could have
timed it perfectly.
The only way that happened was because of God!
That’s the way He works.
Like Ruth just happened to be gleaning in the field of Boaz (Ruth 2:2-4) so it happened for the woman.
She thought she was just going to plead to the king for her house and land and nothing more.
She didn’t have the faintest idea that Gehazi was talking about her.
She had no idea how her life was about t0 change……
“Then he assigned an official to her case and said to him, Give back everything that belonged
to her, including all the income from her land from the day she left the country until now.”
2 Kings 8:6
This post is about how a loving God directs our
every step in ways we cannot even begin to fathom!
He has planned our every step friends.
You may be between a rock and a hard place but know that God is with you.
Nothing that happens in your life escapes Him.
He is well aware of all that is going on in your life.
Have faith that He is taking you somewhere.
It may seem like you are at a dead end but its not true.
God will make a way out for you.
There is so much more He has in store for you.
He is leading you to pleasant places.
He is leading you to places He has appointed for you from the beginning
So as you take that step know He is directing your every step!
Bless you friends
