And he said, “Thus says the LORD, ‘I will make this dry streambed full of pools.’  For thus says the LORD, ‘You shall not see wind or rain, but that streambed shall be filled with water, so that you shall drink, you, your livestock, and your animals.’  This is a light thing in the sight of the LORD…  The next morning, about the time of offering the sacrifice, behold, water came from the direction of Edom, till the country was filled with water. — II Kings 3:16-18, 20

            The kings of Israel, Judah and Edom were going against the king of Moab in war.  After “a circuitous march of seven days, there was no water for the army or for the animals that followed them.  Then the king of Israel said, “Alas! The LORD has called these three kings to give them into the hand of Moab.”  But that was not the case. 

“Then one of the king of Israel’s servants answered, “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” (II kings 3:11-12).  Elisha told them the Lord would help them be victorious.  Not only did the Lord God Almighty supply water for the army and all the animals, but He also gave them victory over Moab.  “This is a light thing in the sight of the LORD.”

The Lord brought about miracles.  Think about all the water that was needed for the army and animals!  He provided it without rain.  He filled a dry streambed with water.  Then He even gave victory over the Moabites!  He did it supernaturally using natural things!Now, what is your situation?  “This is a light thing in the sight of the LORD.”  Will you trust Him to work out what He desires to work out in your situation?  Will you faithfully wait on Him to do what He desires to do in and through your life and the circumstances surrounding your life?  Wait on Him!  He is faithful!
