It Is Well

It Is Well

Memory Verse: 2 Kings 4:23

Life Application: Be careful what you speak about a promise from God.

When you are desperate you must seek God’s Promise. We have been given a promise for every situation and circumstance that we face. God already has the answer (promise) even before we know that we have a problem or situation.

Deuteronomy 4:29  NKJV     “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

     When you seek something you search, hunt, for it. You make an honest attempt to look for it.

Psalm 34:10  NKJV     “But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing. 

     The Bible is full of the promises of God. It is up to each one of us to read it and search out the promises that God has given us. When you are desperate you must believe God’s promise. The prophet, Elisha, gave the Shunammite woman a promise under the authority of God (2 Kings 4:8-16). He spoke for God. Elisha told the woman that she would have a son within a year. She knew that Elisha was a man of God, a prophet, but she still did not believe in her heart that she would have a child.

2 Kings 4:17  NKJV     “But the woman conceived, and bore a son when the appointed time had come, of which Elisha had told her.”

     God had promised the Shunammite woman a son (through Elisha) and she had him. God does not lie and He does not take back His promises.

Numbers 23:19  NKJV     “God is not a man, that He should lie,

Nor a son of man that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He

not make it good?”

Titus 1:2  NKJV     “In hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began.”

     What God says is true and His Word is truth. God is not like us. He does not change. He is always the same and His Word is always the same.

Malachi 3:6  NKJV     “For I am the Lord, I do not change”

     We must place our trust in God and believe in Him and His promises.

Proverbs 3:5-6  NKJV     “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct your paths.”

     When you are desperate you must hold on to God’s promise. No matter what you see with your eyes or what people say to you concerning your situation, keep your eyes on God and the promise that He has given you. You can be confident that God  will finish what He has begun.

2 Kings 4:18-20  NKJV     “And the child grew. Now it happened one day that he went out to his father, to the reapers, And he said to his father, ‘My head, my head!’ So he said to a servant, ‘Carry him to his mother.’ When he had taken him and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died.”

     The son that the woman was promised now lay dead in her arms. If she had looked at things through her natural eyes she would have accepted the death of her child. But she knew that God had promised her a son and she knew that her promise was still alive.

2 Kings 4:21-23  NKJV     “And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, shut the door upon him, and went out. Then she called to her husband, and said, ‘Please send me one of the young men and one of  the donkeys, that I may run to the man of God and come back.’ So he said, ‘Why are you going to him today? It is neither the New Moon nor the Sabbath?’ And she said, ‘It is well.’

     The woman took her promise that was ‘dead’ and put it in a room where no one would see it and shut the door. She determined that she would go to the man of God on behalf of her ‘dead’ promise.

2 Kings 4:32-33  NKJV     “When Elisha came into the house, there was the child, lying dead on his bed. He went in therefore, shut the door behind the two of them, and prayed to the Lord.”

     Sometimes God gives us a promise and it seems like the promise is ‘dead’. We need to be like the Shunammite woman- we need to shut out the things (and people) that might keep our promise ‘dead’. We must be very careful what we hear and listen to concerning our promise. There is life and death in our words. Every word that comes out of man’s mouth either brings life or it brings death.

Proverbs 18:21  NKJV     “Death and life are in the power of the tongue,

And those who love it will eat its fruit.”

     The words we say are very powerful. They will either bless a situation or curse it.

James 3:10  NKJV     “Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing.”

     By putting the son in the room away from everyone she was protecting her promise from words of death. We too, must hold on to the promise that God has given us and shield it (and ourselves) from negative words and negative people. During these times we must only listen to (and trust in) what God has to say, not man.

Psalm 18:30  NKJV     “As for God, His way is perfect; The word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.”

     We serve a God of completion. He never leaves things half done or undone. And He never gives us something just to take it away again!

Philippians 1:6  NKJV     “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” 

     We must not waver in our faith even when we do not see the answer with our eyes.

Hebrews 11:1  NKJV     “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of thing not seen.”

     When you are desperate you must rejoice In God’s Promise.

Psalm 119:162  NKJV     “I rejoice at Your word as one who finds great treasure.”

     No matter how bad things look or how negative the report is, you should still rejoice. Not at what you are going through, but at the fact that the Lord God Almighty is on your side.

Psalm 5:11  NKJV     “But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those who love Your name be joyful in You.”

     We can rejoice in knowing that God will never leave us or forsake.

Deuteronomy 31:6 NKJV     “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will never leave you nor forsake you.”

     We must be like the Shunammite women and say, “It is well”  (2 Kings 4:23, 26). Yes, she could see  that her son was dead, but she knew the promise that she had been given. And she knew who to go to on behalf of her promise. She knew that the Lord would never leave her or forsake her, and that He was on her side.When God gives us a promise we must have faith that it will come to pass. There may be times that we think that our promise is ‘dead’, and we may be tempted to give up on our promise. During these times we must go directly to God and allow the Holy Spirit hover over our promise and to breath new life into it.

2 Kings 4:34-35  NKJV     “And he went up and lay on the child, and put his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands; and he stretched himself out on the child, and the flesh of the child became warm. He returned and walked back and forth in the house, and again went up and stretched himself out on him; then the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.”

Rise Above The Crowd

Rise Above The Crowd

Memory Verse: Deuteronomy 4:29

Life Application: If we seek God we will find Him.

There are times that you need to get away from everything and seek God’s presence. To seek His direction. Zacchaeus desired to see Jesus, but there were so many people crowding around. He had to find a way to get Jesus’ attention.

Luke 19:1-2  NKJV     “Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.”

     Like Zacchaeus we don’t need to be held back by the crowd. We must not allow our intimate times with God or our times of seeking His face to be crowded  out. Many times, we too, must swallow our pride in order to get God’s attention. We too, must discern where God is moving. We should not allow ourselves to be held back by the crowd.

Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV     “But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.”

     We must seek God first, before things or people. Things and people must never come before God. Our intimate times with God must not be allowed to be crowded out.

Luke 19:3-4  NKJV     “ And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him for He was going to pass that way.”

     We must not allow people, circumstances, or things to crowd out our time with God. Nor should we allow what man may see as a physical limitation to be an excuse for not seeking God’s face. Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus – he wanted (sought) to draw close to Him. Throughout the Bible we see that whenever people truly seek the Lord they find Him.

Matthew 7:7-8  NKJV     “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

     Zacchaeus was determined that he would not be kept away from the Lord by the actions of the crowd. The crowd surrounded Jesus so Zacchaeus decided that he would climb a tree (rise above the crowd) in order to catch a glimpse of Jesus. When we allow our time with God to be crowded out, we are allowing our enemy to push us away from God. Our adversary is very subtle. Many times he doesn’t tempt us with bad, evil or sinful things. All he has to do is keep us so busy with good things (works) that our time with God gets crowed out. It is very subtle- a little at a time until our relationship with God is lukewarm and we are indifferent. God does not desire that our relationship with Him be lukewarm or indifferent.

Revelation 3:15-16  NKJV     “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”

     A person that is indifferent to God will have or show no (or little) interest or attention to Him. Eventually their relationship with God will become mediocre.

Psalm 27:4  NKJV     “One thing I have desired of the Lord,

That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord

All the days of my life,

To behold the beauty of the Lord,

And to inquire in His temple.”

     God desires (longs) to spend intimate time alone with each one of us, and that we seek His face with all our heart.

Song of Solomon 7:10  NKJV     “I am my beloved’s

And his desire is toward me.”

     We must swallow our pride and do whatever we have to do get the attention of God. Pride is having a high opinion of one’s own worth or possessions; pleasure or satisfaction with oneself; acting as if better than others. Zacchaeus was a rich man and it was probably a very humbling thing for him to have to climb a tree in order to see Jesus. Climbing the tree also was like placing a spotlight on his physical shortcomings (his short height). Pride will always come between you and God (God hates pride) and it will have a negative effect on your relationship with Him.

Proverbs 8:13  NKJV     “The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way

And the perverse mouth I hate.” 

     Naaman’s pride was injured and he became angry when he was given the pathway to his healing. Naaman had to swallow his pride. He humbled himself and followed the prophets instructions.

2 Kings 5:9-11  NKJV     “Then Naaman went with his horses and chariot, and he stood at the door of Elisha’s house. And Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, ‘Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored to you, and you shall be clean.’  “But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, ‘Indeed, I said to myself, ‘He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the name of the Lord his God, and wave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’ ”

     Only after he humbled himself did God cleanse him of leprosy. If Naaman had not swallowed his pride and humbled himself he would have missed out on his healing.

2 Kings 5:14  NKJV     “So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.” 

Luke 19:4-5  NKJV     “So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, ‘Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.’ ”

     Like  Zacchaeus, must run ahead of and climb higher than the crowd. We must discern (recognize and distinguish) where and in what direction God is moving and align ourselves up with Him. However, we can not discern what God is doing or where He is moving outside of the Holy Spirit. We must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit!  Only the Holy Spirit can reveal things about God to us. When the Holy Spirit reveals to us where God is moving we must be willing to go in that direction.

1 Corinthians 2:10-12  NKJV     “But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit  who is from God, that we might know the things of God.”

     Jesus would go off alone to seek God’s direction and to draw closer to God. Should we not do the same? There are times that the Spirit will draw us away from everyone in order to give us strength for what lies ahead. We must discern where the Holy Spirit is leading us. Prior to Jesus’ ministry the Spirit led Him into the desert by Himself.

Matthew 4:1 NKJV     “Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” 

     Jesus would go off alone to seek God’s direction and to draw closer to God. Should we not do the same? There are times that the Spirit will draw us away from everyone in order to give us strength for what lies ahead. We must discern where the Holy Spirit is leading us. Prior to Jesus’ ministry the Spirit led Him into the desert by Himself. Spiritual victories are often followed by times where we have been alone seeking the face of God. Also, after a spiritual victory, we need to get alone with God for fresh strength and fresh vision.
