2 Kings 4:1 NKJV

“A certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets cried out to Elisha, saying, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that your servant feared the Lord. And the creditor is coming to take my two sons to be his slaves.”


-There was a certain woman who was distressed and faced a financial crisis, which might have accumulated after the death of her husband. Commentaries by Josephus have it that she was the widow of prophet Obadiah. The auctioneers threatened to take her two sons as slaves possibly because the widow was needy and had no assets to be repossessed. We all know the love of a parent to her children. It is obvious that she had sleepless night trying to look for solutions to her problem. Many among us has been threatened by auctioneers and other creditors who seek to collect their dues. Many have failed to repay their debts possibly due to low income or no revenues, and the slowdown in economic development. The Lord sent Elisha to save the woman from her economic turmoil. He performed the miracle of multiplication and the widow received enough oil for creditors and her livelihood, together with her two sons. The Lord is our provider and sustainer. Our ever present help in times of trouble. We are called to take heart and wait on the Lord in our situations, work and businesses, and He will make a way for us even where there seems to be no way. Isaiah 49:15-16 says that, “Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually before Me.”


Lord You make firm the steps of those who delight in You. Though we may stumble, we will not fall, for You uphold us with Your righteous hand. We wait on You Lord in our businesses and our work, even though we face trouble You shall deliver us from them all. Lord You prepare a table before us in the presence of our enemies. You anoint our heads with oil, our cups run over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives, and we will dwell in Your house forever. You are our Savior and our Father, we humbly ask You to prosper our businesses and bless the work of our hands. May You grant us the grace of increase, and may Your favor be upon us. May You enable all those who are jobless to get meaningful job opportunities dear Jesus. May You revive our economy and open up new opportunities for us to prosper. You are our God, we put all our trust in You. May You rescue all those who are faced by auctioneers and creditors and deliver them. May You bless all the widows, fatherless and orphans, and prosper all their ways. Lord You have good plans for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. All our hope and trust is in You Lord our God. You have inscribed us on the palm of Your hands, thank You for loving us and for choosing us. We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Your special possession, that we may declare Your praises for You called us out of darkness into Your wonderful light, thank You Jesus for loving us and for choosing us. Amen
