2 Kings 3: 15-18 (NLT) While the harp was being played, the power of the LORD came upon Elisha, 16and he said, “This is what the LORD says: This dry valley will be filled with pools of water! 17You will see neither wind nor rain, says the LORD, but this valley will be filled with water. You will have plenty for yourselves and your cattle and other animals. 18But this is only a simple thing for the LORD, for he will make you victorious over the army of Moab!
The kings of Israel at this time were going to war and it happened that they ran into difficulties; they ran out of water. King Jehoshaphat of Israel had the Kingdom sense to look for a prophet rather than start searching for water. The difference in people is knowing how to get solution to the problems life throws at them. Common sense is to lend money when you desperately need money, Kingdom sense is to sow a seed!
The kings found prophet Elisha and he asked that the harp be played, Elisha knew the importance of music in the presence of God, as he worshiped God, the word came! What praise and worship does for you is that it let's God take over the situation, study your bible back to back whenever people start to worship God, the supernatural takes place, God begins to do wonders.
Suddenly those who were going to die from thirst now had more than enough water for themselves and cattle, furthermore, the war they were going to fight was won!
I am convinced that if there is any challenge I am facing, all I need is:
1.a man of God,
2. a seed
3.prayer of agreement
4. praise and worship. There's nothing that cannot be sorted when you put these four things together.
Which would you focus on, common sense or Kingdom sense?
Jesus is Lord. Shalom
