Part 3 of “Elisha” Series “The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, ‘Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.’ 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’” (2 Kings 4:1-2, NIV). MAIN THOUGHT: WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE WHAT YOU REALLY WANT, GOD IS WHAT YOU REALLY NEED. • Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” (v. 2a). WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE MUCH? 1. STOP WAITING FOR WHAT YOU WANT AND START WORKING WITH WHAT YOU HAVE. • “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil” (v. 2b). 2. OFFER GOD WHAT YOU HAVE AND TRUST HIM TO GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED. • “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars” . . . (vv. 3-7). • “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” (2 Cor. 4:7).
