Provision is Coming

 “Now bring me someone who can play the harp.”

While the harp was being played, the power

of the Lord came upon Elisha,

and he said,

“This is what the Lord says: This dry valley will be filled with pools of water!

You will see neither wind nor rain,

says the Lord, but this valley will be filled with water.

You will have plenty for yourselves and your cattle and other animals.

But this is only a simple thing for the Lord,

for He will make you victorious over the army of Moab!

2 Kings 3:15-18

What are you waiting for?

In what area of your life are you seeking God’s provision?

Whether you’re waiting on a husband, a child to come back to God, the gentle kick of a baby in your tummy, release from oppression or your very next meal, your Heavenly Father knows.

He knows exactly what you need but most importantly, He wants to open the floodgates of Heaven to meet you right where you are – right in the dryness of the valley.

In 2 Kings, we see the armies of Israel preparing for battle against Moab. As they camped in the wilderness of Edom, the realization of lack became apparent. In the entire wilderness, there wasn’t a hint of water for the men or cattle to drink. Wondering what the Lord’s intention could have been to bring them all that way but not provide the simple necessity for their men and cattle, the Kings summoned the Prophet, Elisha. As he did many times before, Elisha went before the Lord to seek an answer for the people of Israel. I love the simple response…

This dry valley will be filled with pools of water!

You will see neither wind nor rain,

says the Lord,

but this valley will be filled with water.

In this passage, we see the word will three times.

 

The valley WILL be filled.

You WILL see neither . . .

But it WILL be filled.

Sometimes in the midst of our dark, barren places, we can begin to think that God has forgotten about us. That He has brought us this far only to abandon us in a place of lack and disparity, but that’s not our loving Heavenly Father. As daughters of the King, we can rest assured that He wants to meet us in our place of need. In our places of brokenness, lack, disappointment, grief, shame, and hurt. He knows what we need, He just wants us to simply come before Him and ask.

 

And when we ask, He will answer.

It may not be in the way we expect, but He is faithful to give us just what we need.

The amazing part about this scripture is that God said, “I will do it, but you will not see it.”

He will do it, but it will not be the way we would perceive it.

Just as the water appeared, so will His provision in your life.

You need only ask, believe and open your hand to receive.
