And he said, Thus says the Lord:
Make this [dry] brook bed full of trenches.
For thus says the Lord: You shall not see wind or rain,
yet that ravine shall be filled with water,
so you, your cattle, and your beasts [of burden] may drink.
This is but a light thing in the sight of the Lord.
2 Kings 3:16-18
Strange. He told them to dig trenches, then told them
they wouldn’t see rain, yet the valley
(thus their trenches) would be filled with water.
A ‘slight thing’ for our Lord.
Has He promised you something but
you don’t see any possibility of it happening?
Go ahead and build your trenches anyway.
(i.e. take a step of faith to the God who does the impossible.)
and then wait faithfully on the Lord to “fill your trenches”.
