”…make this valley full of ditches” [2 Kings 3:16]
What a word! There’s an army all round you [Murphy’s law has been enacted against you – ‘whatever can happen is happening’!] This was the experience of King Jehoshaphat when he was given the word – “Make this valley full of ditches”. Dig ditches! Illogical perhaps, but to us the understanding is this – do what the Holy Spirit tells you to do -follow through with God’s leading regardless of logic. A miracle is about to happen!
The miracle for Jehoshapat was water flooding the banks of the ditches [without rain]. The early morning sun shone on the water and to the enemy it looked like blood! The power of that scene sent the enemy running! Water without rain was the miracle. Water that looked like blood proof of where it came from.
When your enemy sees the power of the miraculous flowing through the works of your hands he will see the God of the power – the presence of God the only miracle worker alive and present with you.
The Miracle of the Christ child, born of a virgin. like water without rain is outside the realm of possibilities. But it happened because our God is the God of impossibilities. Keep pressing in, keep obeying His voice, keep believing His Word and expect a miracle in this season of the miraculous!
