Then the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” When he showed him the place, he cut off a stick and threw it in there and made the iron float. 7 And he said, “Take it up.” So he reached out his hand and took it. —II Kings 6:6

He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. —II Kings 6:16-17

For the Lord had made the army of the Syrians hear the sound of chariots and of horses, the sound of a great army, so that they said to one another, “Behold, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites and the kings of Egypt to come against us.” So they fled… —II Kings 7:6-7

And while he was telling the king how Elisha had restored the dead to life, —II Kings 8:5

            Iron at the water’s bottom made to float— The eyes that are opened to see angels all around— Sounds of chariots and horses as if a great army was descending— The dead restored— What do all these have in common?   It is the supernatural power of God suspending natural law to accomplish His desires for His purposes for His glory and to benefit people.

            Have you seen the supernatural at work in your life?  Do you need to see God work in a supernatural way in your life?  Are their situations and circumstances, difficulties and trials, mountains or rivers, blindness and darkness, sickness and health issues…?  Do you need to see our Lord intervene in these?  Have you talked with Him about it?  Have you asked others to talk with Him about it?  If not… why not?

            Now if you have and you say, “But He has not answered.”  Has He not?  Sometimes as in Paul’s situation the Lord says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (II Corinthians 12:9).  Paul had prayed the say prayer three times for his difficulty to be taken away, but the reason he was not healed was “in order to keep (him) from becoming conceited” (II Corinthians 12:7) and that he would have a different perspective— “That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong” (II Corinthians 12:10).

            Following Jesus does not mean we will not have difficulty.  He may choose to heal or He may not.  He may choose to take the difficulties away or not.  He has the power to do whatever He pleases.  But His choice may not be our choice.  Trust Him for what He is working out in your life!

May it be Father by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-zJHgaoVa4
