THE WORD OF THE LORD IS WITH YOU
II Kings 3:11-12 NKJV "But Jehoshaphat said, “Is there no prophet of
the Lord here, that we may inquire of the Lord by him?” So one of the
servants of the king of Israel answered and said, “Elisha the son of
Shaphat is here, who poured water on the hands of Elijah.” And
Jehoshaphat said, “The word of the Lord is with him.” So the king of
Israel and Jehoshaphat and the king of Edom went down to him."
Brothers and sisters, God is still speaking today! Hallelujah!
But a lot of us still don't have an understanding of the things of God.
We go about looking for the word of God, from church to church, prophet
to prophet, program to program, as if we are Old Testament people
without the Holy Ghost. When are we going to grow up! If so many
believers are in need of help, who will rescue the world?
10:8 says that the word is near, in our mouths and in our hearts! Your
solution will not come by running around (this word is for someone), sit
down, be still and hear the Spirit of God speaking to you! I like what
David said, "He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me
beside the still waters. He restores my soul." Are you lying down? Are
you being led by the still waters? Job 33:14-16 says, "For God may speak
in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in
a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering
on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their
instruction." May you begin to perceive His voice in Jesus name. Amen.
