God’s Word Is The Answer

The Bible says, “Elisha returned to Gilgal and there was a famine in that region. While the company of the prophets was meeting with him, he beef stewsaid to his servant, “Put on the large pot and cook some stew for these prophets.” One of them went out into the fields to gather herbs and found a wild vine and picked as many of its gourds as his garment could hold. When he returned, he cut them up into the pot of stew, though no one knew what they were. The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, “Man of God, there is death in the pot!” And they could not eat it.  Elisha said, “Get some flour.” He put it into the pot and said, “Serve it to the people to eat.” And there was nothing harmful in the pot.” (2Ki. 4:38-41)

Notice what they threw into the pot to counteract the poison: flour, which represents God’s Word, the bread of life. Instead of letting your disappointments make you sour, reach for the Scriptures. Instead of letting resentment infect your attitude, turn to the Scriptures and let God show you how to deal with it. Don’t let bad experiences leave a bad taste in your mouth. Who was threatened that day? The sons of the prophets, those with great potential, those God planned to use. How can you keep your heart right and your future protected? Jesus answers, “You are clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.” (Jn. 15:3)
