Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a little oil.” ( 2Kings 4:2 )
“She” in the verse is the wife of a deceased prophet whose ex-husband was in debt. Now, the creditors came to collect their money or take the widow’s two children away. So the widow came to the prophet Elisha for help. She probably thought the prophet will just hand the money to her. But, no…the money was in her own house all along except in a seed form. There are times when the provisions of God seem like a lie–false hope. But reality is that, God always gives seed in every new beginning. The little oil she had was the seed for abundance just as in Jesus’ day, the five loaves of bread and two fishes for 5,000 people. God will always give seed and then give you the ability to reproduce and multiply it. Do you have something that seem insignificant and so you despise it? Know this, that small ‘something’ is a seed, water it and it will multiply. Even if it is a business idea or a creative design, it is a seed that can become something bigger. Hold on, and believe in it.
