2 Kings 4:2 So Elisha said to her, "What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?" And she said, "Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil."
The woman's husband has just died. Her two sons are about to be sold as slaves to pay debts. She ran to God not from God when she has this problem. She doesn't go to the bank or government, but to the man of God. She looks for a God answer for her impossible problem. The best start for a miracle is not to presume you have the answer but ask the question, 'what shall I do?' As you ask, the answer will come. It's an unselfish question, 'for you.' Not what can I do, but what will I do. Committed to bring an answer. Step by step the miracle unfolds. Her answer is in what she has in the house. It doesn't matter what it is, whatever it is, God is going to use it. She thinks that what she has is not much. Most of us do. But God can use your little & provide answers to impossible situations. He tells her to POUR it out. Don't hold back. Give it all you've got. Don't dribble, POUR! As long as there were empty vessels in the House, the oil kept pouring!!!
