TOPIC: UNBELIEF HAS A PRICE TAG
TEXT: 2 KINGS 7:3-20
Many African countries, especially in the West African sub-region, are facing their greatest existential threats, especially the Christians. These threats are the result of ongoing acts of terrorism threatening to swallow us all.
Imagine your pastor coming up during Sunday service to announce: "Tomorrow by this time all the terrorist will no longer be in existence!" Most worshipper will think the pastor is either joking or has a psychological problem.
In the middle of a famine crisis, prophet Elisha announced that in 24 hours there would be surplus food that the nation may not be able to contain. The king's servant did not only disbelieve but he mocked God: "Even if the Lord open the floodgates of heavens, could this happen?" God honoured His Word and Elisha and the unbelieving mocking servant of the king paid the supreme price of unbelief: he died!
Don't just write off your pastor's pronouncements, check them out with God first.
Do you know that most times when God speaks, it almost never makes sense to the human mind?
Dear Jesus, open my eyes, increase my understanding and fill me with the grace to discern Your will in every situation I find myself, Amen.
