5 But now bring me a musician.” Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him. And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ 17 For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ 2 Kings 3:15 – 17
In the scripture, the King of Israel had consulted Elisha to know the mind of God concerning a battle they were to engage in, against some enemy nations. Bible records that Elisha asked for a musician to play. As the musician played, the presence of God came down upon Elisha and God revealed a divine strategy for the use of the King of Israel.
Today’s episode is for someone at a cross roads. Someone in need of a superior strategy to get them out of the dumps. Someone that needs to know what next, where next, or how. The Spirit of God is saying, if you can get into my presence, I will reveal a divine strategy to you! Very few people actually come into God’s presence, even in their quiet times and devotions. Psalm chapter 100, gives a glimpse of the way God expects us to come into His presence – with singing, joyfully and gladly!
Don’t frown through your family morning devotion? God is big on HOW you come to Him. Come to Him with joy, dancing, singing and expectation! Draw near to Him, so He can come into your chaotic life and speak peace! God is saying to someone this morning, if you will only come! Create time to sing to me and invite me into your presence! If you will only make out time to have an intimate one on with me, I will give you the one plan, the one strategy, the one answer that will put a final end to the battles you are currently facing!
This episode is just a reminder of the fact, that in God’s presence lies the divine strategy that will cause your turn around! No wonder David continued to sing that his soul longed after God and His presence as a deer panted for the waters! David was addicted to God’s presence! He understood it and never wanted to live a day of His life outside of it!
The solution to the series of challenges you are currently facing can only come when you take out time to invite His presence! Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts will praise and watch answers come flooding your mind!
