There is nothing impossible with God
We could see two womens in the chapter 4 of II Kings. One is a poor
widow and the other is a rich women. (You can read about them in 2nd
King Ch.4) Both are facing some serious problems in their life which
cannot be solved by themselves. We all have problems which cannot be
solved by ourselves. But these womens are lucky enough to have a
prophet with them who solved their problems. If you have a problem,
don't be afraid, here, in front of you a one person is present, he is
grater than the prophet Elisha, He is Jesus. Take all your problems to
him. He will solve all your problems. He can deliver you from
Let us look at the rich women who come in to contact with the prophet. When he visited Shunem she invited him to have a meal. He used to travel through Shunem. Whenever he visited Shunem he stopped at her house to eat. She said to her husband, "I know that this man who often comes our way is a holy man of God. Let's make a small room on the roof and put in it a bed and a table, a chair and a lamp for him. Then he can stay there whenever he comes to us."
She has a good heart, a giving heart, an understanding heart. There were many houses in the village of Shunem. But one house is opened to the Servant of God. She had a open heart. That is what we need to have. A heat that is open to receive our savior Jesus Christ. When she opened her house and heart to receive the man of God she got blessings. That is the secret of Blessings. Do you need some blessings, please open your heart. He will come to you and bless you.
One day when Elisha came, he went up to his room and lay down there. He said to his servant Gehazi, "Call the Shunammite." So he called her, and she stood before him. Elisha said to him, "Tell her, 'You have gone to all this trouble for us. Now what can be done for you? Can we speak on your behalf to the king or the commander of the army?' "
She replied, "I have a home among my own people."
"What can be done for her?" Elisha asked.
Gehazi said, "Well, she has no son and her husband is old."
Then Elisha said, "Call her." So he called her, and she stood in the
doorway. "About this time next year," Elisha said, "you will hold a
son in your arms."
"No, my lord," she objected. "Don't mislead your servant, O man of God!"
But the woman became pregnant, and the next year about that same time she gave birth to a son, just as Elisha had told her.
See she done all that without expecting anything. She had short
falls in her life. She never spoke about it. You don't have to talk
about your short falls in life to anybody. When you receive Jesus in
your heart, he understands your short falls. He know what you need.
He will give you whatever you want in your life. Just receive him in
your hart, He knows all about you. He will bless you. He will provide you for your all needs. He understands you very well.
The child grew, and one day he went out to his father, who was with the reapers. "My head! My head!" he said to his father.
His father told a servant, "Carry him to his mother." After the servant had lifted him up and carried him to his mother, the boy sat on her lap until noon, and then he died. She went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and went out.
She called her husband and said, "Please send me one of the servants
and a donkey so I can go to the man of God quickly and return."
"Why go to him today?" he asked. "It's not the New Moon or the Sabbath."
"It's all right," she said.
Her husband was not spiritual as she was. He goes to church on Sundays and on Easter or Christmas. Now he couldn't see a reason to go to church. That is why he is saying that today is not the Sabbath or New Moon. Why you are going to church. But the good news is that he did not prevent her from going to Church. Many of us are like him. We go to church or God only on Sunday's or special occasions. When we face problems, we should go to God. There is no special time to go to God. When ever there is a problem, you can go to him and seek his intervention. He is open 24 x 7 x 365.
She saddled the donkey and said to her servant, "Lead on; don't slow down for me unless I tell you."
Look at her faith. She didn't informed about the death of her child even to her husband. She didn't cry at the loss of her child. She has the courage to keep it with her. Here starts her problem. She know that she could not handle the situation. She cannot bring her child back to life. But she knows that there is one who can solve her problem. He is able to give a solution. When we face such situation, where we are going. Are we going to someone who is fully capable to solve our problem. Or are we going to someone who could not handle the problem. She did not take her child to a Doctor. If she had done so, the doctor could only confirm the death and nothing more. But she went to one to whom she believed, who could solve her problem. Where we are going to get a solution for our problem. Are we going to the right person. Our friends and relatives could only mourn with us. So why we should go to them. Take your problem to Jesus. He will be able to give you a solution for your problem.
So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, "Look! There's the Shunammite! Run to meet her and ask her, 'Are you all right? Is your husband all right? Is your child all right?' "
"Everything is all right," she said.
See her faith. She is saying everything is all right. She didn't say that she is in a problem. She said "Everything is alright. She could have burst into tears and pour out her heaviness of her heart in front of Gehazi. But she didn't do that. Even though Gehazi is helping the prophet, he is not the right person to tell all the problem.
Yes, with the faith she is saying her child is alright. She knows that she has come to a prophet who can make her son well.
Yes, when we come in the presence of God, even though we have problems, we must say the words of faith. Say everything is alright. Say to your brother and your sister that everything is alright. Because you have come to Jesus who is able to solve your problem.
When she reached the man of God at the mountain, she took hold of his feet. Gehazi came over to push her away, but the man of God said, "Leave her alone! She is in bitter distress, but the LORD has hidden it from me and has not told me why."
"Did I ask you for a son, my lord?" she said. "Didn't I tell you, 'Don't raise my hopes'?"
Elisha said to Gehazi, "Tuck your cloak into your belt, take my staff in your hand and run. If you meet anyone, do not greet him, and if anyone greets you, do not answer. Lay my staff on the boy's face."
But the child's mother said, "As surely as the LORD lives and as you live, I will not leave you." So he got up and followed her.
Gehazi went on ahead and laid the staff on the boy's face, but there was no sound or response. So Gehazi went back to meet Elisha and told him, "The boy has not awakened."
When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his couch. He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to the LORD. Then he got on the bed and lay upon the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out upon him, the boy's body grew warm. Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out upon him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.
Elisha summoned Gehazi and said, "Call the Shunammite." And he did. When she came, he said, "Take your son." She came in, fell at his feet and bowed to the ground. Then she took her son and went out.
When we face where we are going. Are we going to Jesus who could solve our problems. If so, you don't have to worry. He will not turn you down.
Yes there is nothing impossible for God.
May God bless you.
God loves you
There is nothing impossible for god. Everything is possible for God.
God loves you and me. That is why He sent us to this world. He want
us to live according to his will and standard just as we want our
children live according to our will and standard. We have great
expectation about our children. They want to study well. They should
behave well. They should be obedient to us. We want them to he
helping, loving, caring, understanding, accepting etc. We want them
to take care of themselves. Do right things and say the truth.
Whatever that we expect from our children, God also expect from us.
we think God is not loving us. That is why he is not giving us a lot
money, fame and power. We love our children. If they live according
to our will and direction, we are happy to give them whatever we have.
Money, house, business, vacation, etc. In the same way, if we live
according to His direction and will, he would be happy to give you what
ever you need in your life. Nothing is impossible for Him. He can
give you a Good Business, or a Big House or Happy Married life, Good
children, Lot of Bank Balance ......
If you are feeling that you are not loved by God, there is
something wrong with you. You have to correct it. So that the God
would be able to love you, bless you and give you whatever you need.
I love God. I want to be an obedient child of God. I am sure God would return that love to me.
Do the will of God. It is the best thing to be loved by God.
Have a nice day
