Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Kings 4:10
Let’s make a small room on the roof and put in it a bed and a table, a chair and a lamp for him. Then he can stay there whenever he comes to us.
There was a family that Elisha the Prophet would often stop by and have a meal with on his regular journeys. On one occasion, the woman of the house said to her husband, “Let’s set up a permanent room so he can stay with us overnight if he needs to.”
In the previous verse the woman had told her husband, “I know that this man is holy.” Because he was, the family wanted the power of God to be in their home. They built an addition to their house so the man of God could stay there. In time, the man of God prophesied that they would have a child. They did, according to the prophecy. Years later the boy suffered a sun stroke and died. His mother called Elisha, the man of God, and he came. The boy was raised from the dead. Why was that? She had faith for sure, but I believe it was also because years before she had decided to “Make A Room For The Power Of God!”
Thank You that years ago we made room for Your power in our home. You have never failed to bring us a miracle in our deepest hour of need! Amen
