What should we do when we are confronted with obstacles and problems that defy human solutions?
2 Kings 2:14, “Then he took the cloak that had fallen from him and struck the water with it. ‘Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?’ he asked. When he struck the water, it divided to the right and to the left, and he crossed over.”
What should we do when we are confronted with obstacles and problems that defy human solutions? Elijah had crossed the Jordan by performing a miracle. Now, Elisha faces the Jordan. Will God divide the river for Elisha? That is exactly what happened. God used Elisha in a special way, in fact, Elisha performed twice a s many miracles as Elijah. God is looking for people who will allow Him to work through them.
"BUT GOD" If you want a wonderful experience, take your New Testament and use a concordance to look up the two little words, "but God." See how many times human resources have been brought to an utter end; despair has gripped the heart and pessimism and gloom has settled upon a people; and there is nothing that can be done. Then see how the Spirit of God writes in luminous letters, "But God," and the whole situation changes into victory. -Ray C. Stedman, "Man of Faith". Christianity Today-Vol. 30, #5.
Lord help us to be yielded to you so that you can work through us in miraculous ways.
