2nd Kings 8:4 – Then the king talked with Gehazi, the servant of the man of God, saying,Tell me, please, all the great things Elisha has done.

Have you ever been in a place you don’t deserve? A place way above your education, resume and intellect? Have you ever looked around you and said, “Look what the Lord has done?” because if you are going to be honest with yourself and other people, you know you are not meant to be there. Have you ever felt like the children of Israel in Psalm 126:1, “When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.” Maybe, like me, you have discovered that promotion does not come from the east or from the west, but from above.

Psalm 113:7-8 makes me think about the goodness of the Lord – “He raises the poor out of the dust, And lifts the needy out of the ash heap, That He may seat him with princes— With the princes of His people.


Some people cannot celebrate where you are right now because they have no idea what it took you to get there. They cannot celebrate the fact that you are in your right mind because they don’t know that you almost lost it. That’s the reason why, sometimes, you just have to celebrate yourself and give glory to God for your life. Don’t let anyone or any situation try to shut you up like they tried against blind Bartimeus. We have to be like David and decide, “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

Gehezai in our text was the servant of Elisha, the man of God. This tells us his potentials, but unfortunately he forfeited the triple portion (Read 2nd Kings 5). He missed out on the anointing. He could have walked in a greater anointing than his master’s.

Gehezai was also cursed by Elisha because of his greed. Elisha told him that the curse of Naaman will be reversed and placed on him instead. Then he became a leprous man(2nd Kings 5:27).

Now if he had leprosy in 2nd Kings 5, and he is talking to the King in chapter 8, then something must have happened. In the old testament, if you were a leprous man, you were not allowed in the city, but there he was talking with the king.

In between those chapters was a great famine. It was a time of extreme trouble.

Sometimes when we experience troubled times, it is an opportunity for our miracle. We have to look at the trouble and confess, “This is not my trouble, this is a potential miracle.” We need to look at our situation and tell it to match up to our revelation, because man’s extremity is just God’s opportunity to manifest HIS power. We serve a radical God. We serve a God that likes to show up. He loves to wait till Lazarus is dead, three days stinking in the tomb before He comes and raises Him. He likes difficult situations. The bible says in Psalm 46 that He is the very present help in time of trouble. So when we face trouble, it is an opportunity to experience His presence. 2nd Cor 12 says “His strength is made perfect in our weakness.” Isaiah 40:29 says “He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.” We serve a God that invests in things that really look bad. He invests in troubled marriages, He steps into terrible medical cases, when you get an eviction notice from your landlord, then He steps in. Never ever give up.

Back to our text, the famine was so bad that they were eating Dog’s poo. They even resulted to cannibalism. And the king looked at Elisha the man of God, trying to fix the blame on him and also seeking a solution. Then Elisha gave a word (sometimes all we need is a word from God). He said, “Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.” The word/prophecy sounded unbelievable that the king had to ask for Elisha’s testimonies. There was no better person to ask than one very close to the man of God – Gehezai. He was called before the king in spite of his leprosy. It was an abomination but I call it GRACE…

When you are sponsored by GRACE, all situations are possible.

Our God is an Ephesian 3:20 God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly far above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…
