Be Fueled By Faith

18 When the child had grown, he went out one day to his father among the reapers. 19 And he said to his father, ‘Oh, my head, my head!’ The father said to his servant, ‘Carry him to his mother.’ 20 And when he had lifted him and brought him to his mother, the child sat on her lap till noon, and then he died. 21 And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God and shut the door behind him and went out.

22 Then she called to her husband and said, ‘Send me one of the servants and one of the donkeys, that I may quickly go to the man of God and come back again.’ 23 And he said, ‘Why will you go to him today? It is neither new moon nor Sabbath.’ She said, ‘All is well.’ 24 Then she saddled the donkey, and she said to her servant, ‘Urge the animal on; do not slacken the pace for me unless I tell you.’ 25 So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.” ~ 2 Kings 4:18-25

When the Shunammite woman’s son died, she went straight to Elisha. She didn’t go to her friends. She didn’t go to her family. She didn’t complain. She didn’t get upset. She went straight to the Man of God. When people asked her how she is doing and about her son, she just responded: “all is well.” She never allowed what her eyes saw to be the final say. She never allowed the physical to dictate the spiritual.

Her faith was never shaken because she remembered the miracles of her past. She remembered the answered prayers. Her faith was dictated what she saw, not the other way around. That’s how we need to be. Our faith should dictate what we see. When tragedy hits, we should see hope. When trials come, we should see miracles. We should live our lives fueled by our faith. Our Faith should guide our walk. Our talk. Our actions. And our thoughts. Our faith should be the lens that we see the world through.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be Fueled By Faith.
