Throughout scripture, I have proven that what you need is always either in your hand, or around you, or can be produced/created by something you have in your hand. Many times the only challenge you have is in your heart not being enlightened, your ears being deaf or your eyes being blind. The provision for everything you’d ever need was made ready and available before you were put in your mother’s womb. The crowd that was with me for three days did not need to go away and look for food. There was someone there, with a little food I could use to multiply. Hagar wept and moved away from her son because she thought he’d die of thirst in the desert; all I did was open her eyes to water that was right where she was. When Moses was hesitant to accept the call of a deliverer, I used what was in his hand to give him confidence by making it a miracles, signs and wonder working tool. And when the widow was about to lose her sons to her late husband’s creditors, Elisha used the little oil she had in her house. He multiplied it to help her pay off her debts and leave her with enough to sustain them. Stop crying. Stop fretting. Believe you have something in you and that there is something around you that I have placed to help you breakthrough. Ask for eyes that see, ears that hear and a heart that is flooded with light. I am your Shepherd; you shall lack NOTHING.
New Living Translation (NLT)
But Moses protested again, “What if they won’t believe me or listen to me? What if they say, ‘The Lord never appeared to you’?”
2 Then the Lord asked him, “What is that in your hand?”
“A shepherd’s staff,” Moses replied.
3 “Throw it down on the ground,” the Lord told him. So Moses threw down the staff, and it turned into a snake! Moses jumped back.
4 Then the Lord told him, “Reach out and grab its tail.” So Moses reached out and grabbed it, and it turned back into a shepherd’s staff in his hand.
5 “Perform this sign,” the Lord told him. “Then they will believe that the Lord, the God of their ancestors—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob—really has appeared to you.”
New Living Translation (NLT)
4 One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the Lord. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.”
2 “What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?”
“Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied.
3 And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors. 4 Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.”
5 So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another. 6 Soon every container was full to the brim!
“Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons.
“There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing.
7 When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.”
