19 The king’s officer had replied, “That couldn’t happen even if the Lord opened the windows of heaven!” And the man of God had said, “You will see it happen with your own eyes, but you won’t be able to eat any of it!” 20 And so it was, for the people trampled him to death at the gate! –2 Kings 7:19, 20 NLT
Everything that Elisha had prophesied about the famine and then the abundance of food came to pass. Not one thing was left out. God had defeated an army by confusing them until they fought each other and then the rest ran away leaving all of their supplies which included the abundance of food they had stored for their sustenance during the siege. Israel did not fight the battle and they did not lose one single soldier in getting the supply that God had promised. The only person lost was the king’s assistant and he was trampled by his own people before he could get a bite of food. Every detail was fulfilled. God has made us many amazing promises in His Word. We can believe those promises, access them and enjoy the benefits of living in His presence or we can try to make it on our own and experience defeat and death. God is not a man that He should lie and He is not slack concerning His promises. There is no fine print or legalese to interrupt, just promises made in simple langauge that anyone can understand. Don’t be like Pharaoh and choose to live with the frogs one more night. Just believe God’s Word and start enjoying the benefits of lving in His resurrection power today.
