2 Kings 6:24-7:2

In 2 Kings 7:1-2, Elisha conveys a message of hope during a desperately hopeless situation.  But the response he gets is one of skepticism.  Elisha warns that, yes, the miracle will indeed happen, but that the skeptic would not get to enjoy it.

I wonder how often God wants to do something amazing for us, but we miss it for lack of faith.  I wonder how often He is actually doing something amazing right in front of us, but we miss it for lack of faith. God is at work in our world, all around us, and we can either be a part of it or miss out completely, depending on our openness, faith and response.

Lord, please give me eyes to see, as You did for the young man in 1 Kings 6:17. Don’t let me miss out on Your best for my life. Don’t let me miss out on being a part of the amazing thing You’re doing here, right in front of me and all around me. Help me see, believe, and act accordingly.
