Anointed hands

2 Kings 13:16”Then he said to the king of Israel, "Put your hand on the bow." And he put his hand on it, then Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands.”

We need to know whom to call during times of crisis! Knock the right door!  One wrong counseling, one wrong direction, a single wrong advice and carnal thoughts can take you downhill! Discern the will of God!  Are you listening?  When someone whispers, ‘resign and take up another job with higher salary’ don’t naively submit to all voices, fast and pray to hear HIS voice.  Escaping the present crisis and jumping to another safe zone sounds good but if God wants you to stay and face the challenge then yield to the will of God.  In the many twists and turns of my life, I have found that God is not bankrupt of ideas, He takes you through the various corridors of life but eventually would lead you to your destination.


OBEY GOD:  You need not know the mysteries of God, just trust Him and follow Him wholeheartedly!  God has got the best in mind for you, He not only thinks of you or the present circumstances, but He has in mind many people while working over a situation.  His ways are High!  (Isaiah 55:9)  Bird minded person cannot comprehend God's ways.  King of Israel knocked the door of prophet Elisha when he was attacked by enemies and wept  over him and said, ‘My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!’  I hope we all turn to the right person when life gets messy!  Do you hear me?  Prophet Elisha tells him to take a bow and arrows and shoot through the window, ( observe not arrow but arrows – be ready to strike many times) king Joash obeyed the prophet. 

GOD WOULD STRENGTHEN YOU:  2 King 13:16" Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands......

I like the part where prophet Elisha lays his hands on the king’s hands; when our hands and shoulders droop with exhaustion, pain and discouragement, God would strengthen our hands through the hands of His prophets.  Isaiah 10 'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'  Take courage today!  Fear not!  David said: O my Strength,  I will watch for you, for you O God are my fortress."  (Psalm 59:9) Wow, what a prayer!  When we feel depleted of strength, God sends His forth His Word, He did that for me when the cook in our Abide School (free school for the poor)  told me that she was leaving the job because of problems in the family, I was not able to get a night warden for the Children Home, I wondered how long can I take these on my shoulders, just then God sent His Word and comforted me and also encouraged me that - help would come.  Hurray. Cheer up!
