Elisha replied, “Hear the word of the LORD. This is what the LORD says: About this time tomorrow, a seah of the finest flour will sell for a shekel and two seahs of barley for a shekel at the gate of Samaria.” The officer on whose arm the king was leaning said to the man of God, “Look, even if the LORD should open the floodgates of the heavens, could this happen?” “You will see it with your own eyes,” answered Elisha, “but you will not eat any of it!”

(2 Kings 7:1-2 NIV)

Have you ever been in a situation where you truly believed God for something only to have someone discourage you because of their lack of faith? I once had a conversation with someone who said that what I believed God for was impossible with how things were going. I was reminded of the story in Second Kings where the officer of the king couldn’t believe that even the Lord could miraculously provide for His people’s needs, considering the calamity that had befallen Samaria. I love Elisha’s response, “You will see it with your own eyes…but you will not eat any of it!” and that’s what happened. Don’t miss out on God’s best because of someone’s lack of faith. Keep believing and expecting His word to be fulfilled in your life.

Believe God for the impossible and receive the incredible.
