Surplus Declared

Key Verse

“Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria” (2 Kings 7:1).

TEXT — 2 Kings 7:1-11


Billionaire Warren Buffett earned the nickname, Oracle of Omaha, because of his legendary investment ability to reap huge profits from the stock market. His record achievement makes investors to routinely seek him for guidance and prediction on future market events. Warren does not owe his success in the investment space to some clairvoyant powers; rather, it is a result of practised accuracy at predicting market movements. Prophetic declarations operate on a much more elevated plane.

Prophet Elisha’s prediction of plenty in Israel, for example, was totally contrary to the run of events. The nation was so impoverished that unspeakable cannibalism was rife in the land. So, when Elisha gave a prophecy of food surplus coming within 24 hours, it sounded so far-fetched that a king’s deputy openly scoffed at the possibility. Sadly, he paid for his dissension with his life. A strange but divinely-orchestrated turn of events caused the siege to be lifted the following day. God made the Syrian army responsible for the siege to hear frightening sounds of a seeming approach by a more formidable force. They fled in haste, leaving all their stuff behind. Their stock of food was huge enough to reverse the famine. What a great God!

Hunger and famine are ravaging many countries of the world. Runaway inflation combined with global economic downturn is driving families and whole governments into desperation. Cross-border wars are triggering ever-rising number of refugees and internally displaced persons. Amidst all these, is there any hope of a reprieve?

God can reverse the present ugly situation; He can bring plenty again. But Genuine repentance from sin must take place at individual and national levels.

Thought for the day

Human schemes do not effectively relieve human misery; only God does, in answer to prayer.
