Dear Shunammite Woman
“All is well.”
[[Based on a True Story: 2 Kings 4:8-37]]
Dear Shunammite Woman,
When one have accrued great wealth, it is easy to omit the less fortunate. Having a good life makes it is easy to neglect God’s work. Busy spending the money and busy making more, excluding helping those in need. That is not your narrative. You were hospitable to Elisha. Speaking to your husband to open your home and preparing a room for Elisha spoke volume. When you care for the people who are about God’s business, God grants you the desire of your heart without any prayer carry other’s burdens God will use ask you want you want God to do for you. God is indebted to you. Don’t be afraid or reluctant to help God’s people. God gives you what you want, need or deserve without you ask. He will use other’s speak to be a spokesperson to advocate for what you need. As reported by Gehazi and stated in Elisha’s prophecy, you conceived a son. Years later, that son dies. What a catastrophe.
Every good we do, the sacrificial good, are blessings that we are depositing in the bank. When our funds are low, we can make withdrawal in the heavenly bank.
Modern day Shunammite woman, what do you do when you’ve been given to God and SNAP! Just like that you lose something dear to you. It dies. What do you do? What do you do when God said something was yours but someone else had it? God is indebted to you, remain at his feet, in due time. When God say something is yours, believe it is yours. Despite the fact it doesn’t look like it yours. Even when you look defeated. You aren’t what you look like. When the things that God called alive is dead, believe God’s report. Yes and amen. Don’t be afraid or reluctant to help God’s people. Keep doing good. Keep the faith. In doing so, God is forever indebted to you.
Strongly together & Inspired by,
