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?

Romans 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.
