THE BEST YEAR EVER!
2 Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.” II Kings 4:2 NIV
For this to be the best year ever, you are going to have to know 1st- God wants to help and 2nd – what’s in your house! There is a commercial on TV that says “what’s in your wallet?” meaning if you have this item, it opens up to you an unlimited world of resources for you to purchase. The same can be said for you in this regard. Once you gave your life to Jesus, help in the form of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit came into your life… into your house (John 14:23). You now have unlimited purchasing power, all you need to do is put pressure on the covenant. This is exactly what the widow woman did in II Kings 4. She cried out and the prophet replied immediately, “How can I help?” Because we are a new testament church under a new testament position, we no longer have to beg, plead or bargain with God. The Kingdom of blood – the blood of Jesus – operates on decrees; on commands. Our crying out is the believer speaking the Word – putting pressure on the covenant – “Who touched my clothes, who put a demand on the Kingdom?” (Mark 5:27-30) The Father, The Kingdom, then go to work (How can we help – what do you want us to do). “Ask anything in my Sons’ Name and I’ll do it.” (John 15) For faith to work, it requires a response from us. Usually it will always be beyond reason, or really isn’t faith. Go around and ask for empty jars – don’t ask for just a few. (II Kings 4:3) Speak to the mountains! (Mark 11:23) Enter into rest so you don’t miss it. (Hebrews 4:1) When the prophet asked this woman what she had in her house, she responded nothing except a little oil. Son and Daughter of the Most High God, you’ve got more than just a little oil – You’ve got the power of the Holy Spirit. He’s that oil of gladness that is ready to overflow into as many areas as you want Him to. He’s on the inside of you right now! He’s not just a little – He’s table turning over, upside down flipping, reshaping, reversing, stopping the natural order of things in our life, power. Once you’ve made your decree (put pressure on the covenant), closed the door so to speak, this problem/concern is done! Now let the oil flow – the power of the Holy Spirit. There’s a language inside of you that has just increased your purchasing power…you can live off of it. And the good news is there is no bill to pay at the end of the month. It has all been secured by love, and ….Love Never Fails!
