Topic: Her Asset Was Oil – Higher Every Day by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi | Date: Sunday, May 6,2018.
Scripture: “And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? Tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not anything in the house, save a pot of oil “(2 Kings 4:2).
A song writer said “little is much when God is in it. The song rightly fits the story of the woman in our text. She had two sons to cater for alone because her husband was dead. He also left debts which the creditor wanted her to settle otherwise her two sons would be seized from her to labour to pay the money. It was a very pitiful situation. As a child of God, she cried to Prophet Elisha who prophesied on her only asset- a pot of oil. She obeyed the prophet and got a miracle of divine multiplication; the debt was paid.
There was also a left- over for a better life. Your family may be like these boys’. Bills are piled up, no hope for school fees and money for adequate meals. Are there other challenges? As a child of God, you have a greater prophet than Elisha, who is Jesus Christ. What is your asset? Pray in faith and He will bless it to meet your needs. You may also call on your local pastor to pray for your family.
Challenge: lf you ask in faith you will receive.
Prayer: Lord, remove indebtedness and poverty from my family.
