Then the captain on whose hand the King leaned said to the man of God, "Even if the Lord were to make windows in the sky, could such a thing happen?" But he said, "You shall see it with your own eyes but you shall not eat from it." II Kings 7:2 NRSV
II Kings is full of stories about Elishah who has certainly received double the Spirit of Elijah. In fact, I find it interesting that many of the miracles Elishah does are mirrowed by Jesus' miracles. The biggest exception has to be the prediction of disease and death most closely associated with disbelief.
Here the King of Israel' captain doesn't see any way out of the seige of Samaria, not even if God opened up windows in the sky to provide food for the starving people.
How confident are you of God's miraculous solution to your challenges or obstacles? What kind of siege are you experiencing right now? What would it look like if God provided a miracle in your life right now?
God, please excuse us and forgive us when we doubt that you can do a miracle in our current situation. We lift our current sieges up to you now. In Jesus' name. Amen.
