Always, and at all times, the Lord is working on our behalf. Let me remind you of a story. Remember when Elisha raised the Shunamitte’s young son who had died (2 Kings 4:8-37)? Well seven years later we pick up the story.
2 Kings 8:1-6. Gehazi is rehearsing the great things Elisha did, according to the king’s request. Verse 5 is a classic example of God’s orchestration and impeccable timing. It says, “Now it happened, AS he was telling the king how he had restored the dead to life, that there was the woman whose son he has restored to life, appealing to the king for her house and for her land. And Gehazi said, My lord, O king, this is the woman, and this is her son whom Elisha restored to life.”
