THEME: RESTORATION IN CHRIST
2 Kings 7:1
“Then Elisha said, “Hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord: ‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’ ”
-There was a great famine in Samaria, and a donkeys head was sold for eighty shekels of silver, and doves droppings for five shekels. Those who could not afford it became cannibals and fed on human flesh. Neighbors even exchanged their children as food (2 Kings 6:24-30). The Lord caused the Syrian army to hear the noise of chariot and horses, and they thought they were under siege. They fled for their lives leaving their possessions behind. Four lepers who had nothing to loose because of hunger, were encouraged to go into the Syrian camp. There was plenty of food, gold, silver and other items, and they called in the king to witness God’s goodness. As it had been prophesied by Elisha, a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria. The Lord caused restoration to His beloved when there was acute drought in Samaria and the inflation rate shot up. These are some of the challenges that many among us are facing. Due to high inflation levels, prices of commodities have gone up and some cannot even afford a meal, and they sleep on empty stomachs. The crime rate has also gone up and many are depressed. House rent, school fees and other incidentals has become a nightmare, and many among us are suffering. But we have hope in the God, for the Lord who turn the situation around in Samaria our God, and is able to restore our economy, and transform our lives.
Lord You are a God restoration. When there was drought in Samaria, You provided plenty for Your people. May You turn around the situation in our lives, country and other nations of the world. May You restore our lives and the lives of many who are suffering, and cause Your face to shine towards us. May You transformation the economic situation in our nation and cause an overflow in our bans. May You bless the work of our hands and heal our land. May You open up many doors of opportunity for us to prosper and expand our territories. You are our healer and restorer, may You heal our land and make us fruitful in all spheres of our lives. You are worthy Lord and nothing is impossible with You. May You heal our hearts and bless us beyond measure. We praise You and worship You now and forever. Amen
