He Provides – 2 Kings 7:2

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

2 Kings 7:2
The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if YHWH should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?” “You will see it with your own eyes,” answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!”

A famine was taking place in Israel because of the armies of Aram. Elisha declared that not only will the famine be over in one day, but it would be over in such a way that they will have food in abundance. This is why we see the response in the kings officer. Elisha said he would see it, but he wouldn’t eat any of it.

This was not just about unbelief though. It was a declaration of putting limits on YHWH. Listen to the officers response again.

“Look, even if YHWH should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?”

He wasn’t just doubting if the event could happen, he was doubting the ability of YHWH. So be careful to not put limits on what YHWH can do. Don’t end up like this officer who ended up seeing YHWH’s hand at work, but was unable to partake in it.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
