"Elisha said, 'Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don't ask for just a few. Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour the oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.' She left him and afterward shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, 'Bring me another one.' But he replied, 'There is not a jar left.' Then the oil stopped flowing."
Insight: This story challenges me. Do I trust God when I need Him in a big way, or do I assume I will just have to "get by"? We don't usually know how or when God is going to meet our need, but we do know that He is good and that His reserves are limitless. When He asks us to trust Him and take action upon that trust, do we do so sparingly and reservedly or wholeheartedly and full of faith in Him.?
Prayer: Father, when You ask me to trust You, help me to do so with nothing held back. Help me to trust You for answers to prayers that are bigger and more far reaching than my imagination could even come up with. Not because of who I am, but because of who You are. You are not limited by anything or anyone, help me to remember that as I bring my needs and concerns to You. Amen.
