Elisha - A Tale of Ridiculous Faith

Week 2 


The king of Edom and his troops joined them, and and all three armies traveled along a roundabout route through the wilderness for seven days. But there was no water for the men or their animals.
"What should we do?" the king of Israel cried out. "The Lord has brought the three of us here to let the king of Moab defeat us."
But King Jehoshaphat of Judah asked, "Is there no prophet of the Lord with us? If there is, we can ask the Lord what to do through him." One of King Joram's officers replied, "Elisha is here. He used to be Elijah's personal assistant.“ Jehoshaphat said, "Yes, the Lord speaks through him." So the kings of Israel, Judah, and Edom went to consult with Elisha.
"Why are you coming to me?" Elisha asked the king of Israel. "Go to the pagan prophets of your father and mother!"
But the King of Israel said, "No! For it was the Lord who called us three kings here—only to be defeated by the king of Moab!"
Elisha replied, "As surely as the Lord Almighty lives, whom I serve, I wouldn't even bother with you except for my respect for King Jehoshaphat of Judah.
Now bring me someone who can play the harp.
While the harpist was playing, the power of the Lord came upon Elisha and he said, "This is what the Lord says: Make this valley full of ditches.
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!


“Faith that Works!”


Two Principals of “Faith that Works!”:

  1. Only God can send the water; But sometimes He wants you to dig a ditch!

  2. Real faith believes Big; but is willing to start small.

The next day at about the time when the morning sacrifice was offered, water suddenly appeared! It was flowing from the direction of Edom, and soon there was water everywhere.
