1 king 15 verse 18; King Benhadad of Syria led his entire army against Israel and laid siege to the city of Samaria. As a result of the siege the food shortage in the city was so severe that a donkey’s head cost eighty pieces of silver, and half a pound of dove’s dung cost five pieces of silver.
The king of Israel was walking by on the city wall when a woman cried out, “Help me, Your Majesty!”He replied, “If the Lord won’t help you, what help can I provide? Do I have any wheat or wine? What’s your trouble?”
Hearing this, the king tore his clothes in dismay, and the people who were close to the wall could see that he was wearing sackcloth under his clothes. He exclaimed, “May God strike me dead if Elisha is not beheaded before the day is over!” And he sent a messenger to get Elisha.Meanwhile Elisha was at home with some elders who were visiting him. Before the king’s messenger arrived, Elisha said to the elders,
“That murderer is sending someone to kill me! Now, when he gets here, shut the door, and do not let him come in. The king himself will be right behind him.” He had hardly finished saying this, when the king arrived and said, “It’s the Lord who has brought this trouble on us!
Why should I wait any longer for him to do something?”Elisha answered, “Listen to what the Lord says! By this time tomorrow you will be able to buy in Samaria ten pounds of the best wheat or twenty pounds of barley for one piece of silver.”In times of deep trouble, we will find the world is at complete loss to have an answer.If we search out Our Lord and Our Friend for help. help will always come, but not in ways we might expect.
Our lives might seem as though they are surrounded, by nothing good, but if we search out God’s answer, we will find it and there will be great blessing than we could ever of supposed.Faith In Our Loving God, is all the best way, because He knows the plans He has for our lives. They are for good and not for ruin. Jeremiah 29 verse 11.
