In the Bible, the King of Syria besieged the capital of Samaria. As a result, a great famine ensued. The famine was so severe that a donkey’s head sold for 80 pieces of silver. The prophet Elisha went to the king and made a strange proclamation.


“To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.” 2 Kings 7:1


The king did not believe him. How could this be? He had not learned never to limit what God can do for His people.


That night the Lord caused the Syrians to hear chariots, cavalry, and a marching army. In fear and confusion, the Syrians forsook their belongings and ran for their lives.


The next morning, some lepers decided to surrender to the Syrian army. It surprised them to discover that the large army had gone, their tents were empty, and they had left all their belongings behind. The lepers sent word to the king of Samaria. In one day, the city went from famine to abundance, just as Elisha had predicted.


This story reminds us that God holds our future in His hands. When a crisis comes in God’s work, He provides ways for us to overcome. As we give to our local field today, remember that we worship a God of miracles. He will take what we give and increase it to touch lives in supernatural ways.
