TEXT: 2 KINGS 8:5-6
2 Kings 8:5-6- Now it happened, as he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, that there was the woman whose son he had restored to life, appealing to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said “My lord, O king, this is the woman and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.” 6And when the King asked the woman, she told him. So the king appointed a certain officer for her saying, “Restore all that was hers, and all the proceeds of the field from the day that she left the land until now.”
God ordered the steps of the Shunnamite woman to the presence of the king just at the time when the king was talking about her and her son with Gehazi, Elisha’s servant. Her movement that day was a product of divine order or direction such that she was given what she requested for and even more was added unto her. I pray that more shall be added unto you in Jesus name!
Sometime ago, I was in a concert which lasted till late in the night. I did not want to leave before the end of the program, yet I was concerned about how I would get home by myself at that time of the night. But towards the tail end of the program I had this nudging within me to leave the hall since the major part of the program was over, so I obeyed. To my surprise, I met one of my dad’s friends talking with someone about how he could get his car out of the place where it was because someone’s car blocked him there. I greeted him and he asked me where I was heading to. I told him I was going home so he insisted that he must drive me to our house because it was late. I agreed and was happy with the turn of events.
Right there I knew it was God who ordered my steps because he had been waiting there for God knows how long before I got there and within 5 minutes of my arrival at the scene, the owner of the car showed up so we were able to leave the premises.
Beloved, we cannot talk about divine direction without the Holy Spirit because He is the one who guides and leads us. The scriptures say in Romans ‘because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God’. If you desire that your steps will be divinely ordered daily then you need Him in your life
PRAYER POINT: Pray that God will order your steps through the help of the Holy Spirit into the presence of those who will be a blessing to you.
