So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.
When he saw her in the distance, the man of God said to his servant Gehazi, “Look! There’s the Shunammite! 26 Run to meet her and ask her, ‘Are you all right? Is your husband all right? Is your child all right?’”
“Everything is all right,” she said.
27 When she reached the man of God at the mountain, she took hold of his feet. Gehazi came over to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone! She is in bitter distress,but the Lord has hidden it from me and has not told me why.”
28 “Did I ask you for a son, my lord?” she said. “Didn’t I tell you, ‘Don’t raise my hopes’?”
I came across this, this morning while doing my devotions. Isnt it interesting? If you read all of this passage in context. Her son was dead. But the prophet had prophesied that she would have a son and she did. Now she finds her son has died. So she runs to the prophet. The prophet see her, and asks if she is alright, and she replies “Everything is alright”.
Now why did she reply “Everything is alright” when her son was dead. I believe that she had hope now that the prophet was with her so she knew all would be all right. Maybe she was speaking those things that aren’t as tho they were to. She was prophesying over her situation.
How many times, do we at time panic in a crisis and speak out all kinds of doubt and unbelief when God wants you to speak faith. We forget that God is with us, and He is always saying, “everything is going to be alright” This is the truth. Maybe if she hadn’t spoke faith, she may have not had her son raised to life?
When God gives you a promise and you receive it but then things start to go bad. We need to remember Who gave us the promise! And he never gave it to us to let that promise or dream die. No! We need to believe and keep the faith and speak out the promise. And we will surely receive the fulfilled promise that God promised.
So when in a battle, remember Gods promises to you and don’t speak out the doubt because God will complete the good work he began in you. And God never gave you a promise to watch it die in front of you. God gave you that promises and He will keep it alive. Stay in faith and you will see Jesus resurrect it if He needs to, and protect what He has declared. So only speak faith. It is not lying, as you are speaking things that aren’t as though they were and getting your promise.
