But when she came to the man of God at the mountain, she fell to the ground before him and caught hold of his feet. Gehazi began to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone. She is deeply troubled, but the LORD has not told me what it is.”
(2 Kings 4:27 NLT)
Do you sometimes get a sense that something is wrong, but don’t know the reason behind it until much later? This was the case with the prophet Elisha. He could tell that the woman who had come looking for him was sad, but he couldn’t tell why until she told him. I believe that as God’s children, He makes it possible for us to be sensitive to the needs of others, even though He may not necessarily disclose all of the details right away. We should still pray about what we’re feeling and when the time is right, God will make the matter clear to us. The next time you’re overcome with a feeling that you can’t shake off, pray and think about what God may be trying to tell you.
God makes us sensitive to the needs of others.
