Today’s reading II Kings 8-9

II Kings 8:5 And it came to pass, as he was telling the king how he had restored a dead body to life, that, behold, the woman, whose son he had restored to life, cried 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.

This woman had been doing step by step what she was instructed to do! She left her home and went to the land of the Philistines because she was instructed to do so. She is now heading back home the same way.

She goes by to see the king to see about getting her land back. AS she enters they are talking about how God worked in her life through the ministry of Elisha. It is just the right time and the king gives her her request and then some.

It is interesting that as we do what we should, the way we should, and when we should God is at work around us. This lady could have no idea that God would be orchestrating it all to show His power in her life but He was.

Just do right. Sometimes it seems that things are not working out. It seems that we go through the routine and feel disconnected but if we will simply live out who we are and do what He would have us to do we will find that He has been at work in our lives all along!
