The Death Of Your Dream

The story on the Shunammite woman (2 Kings 4:8-37 ) is of personal importance to me these days.

I am going to show you what God showed me concerning this passage.

The woman convinced her husband to make a chamber for the prophet Elisha to sleep in while Elisha was in town.

Elisha told her that within one year, she would have the baby that she desired with her husband, who was old.

Many of us have been given a promise from God.  A dream within our spirits from God that He put on the inside of us when we accept Christ.

Within a year, she had her baby, her promise.

Just like those of us who have been working toward that goal.

Many years later, the son worked in the field with his father.  The boy became sick.  The father took the son to the mother, where he laid upon his mother’s knee and later died.

How many of us have had the dreams that God gave us die?  How many of us have had our dreams look like they could never come to pass?

The Shunammite woman wasn’t phased by this.  She took her son and put him in the chamber in which Elisha slept.

She mounted her animal and went in search of the man of God.  She brought Elisha back to the boy.  He raised the son from the dead.

When we focus our attention on Jesus and what He has done for us, when we believe God, He will resurrect the dream that He has given that has died.

Hallelujah!  God is not phased by the death of our dreams, of the things in our lives, because if they are of Him, He can raise the dead, just like He did Jesus and Lazarus.

Have you received Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?  Do you believe Jesus died to pay the price for your sin?  That He was raised from the dead?  Then just pray aloud, “Lord Jesus, I repent of all my sins.  Come into my heart and be my Lord and Saviour.”  If you believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, you are Born-again.  Let us know if you prayed this prayer.
