Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. 4 Then go inside and shut the door behind you and your sons. Pour oil into all the jars, and as each is filled, put it to one side.” She left him and shut the door behind her and her sons. They brought the jars to her, and she kept pouring. When all the jars were full, she said to her son, “Bring me another one.” But he replied, “There is not a jar left.” Then the oil stopped flowing. 2 Kings 4:3-6

Elisha was a bold man of God. He had great faith in God and did not hesitate to ask for what was humanly impossible. In the passage above, a widow comes to him with a request of her own. The widow and her son in the story above were in enormous debt and faced life-altering consequences. Elisha instructs her to ask for jars, but not just a few. What she didn't know was that the amount of oil was directly related to the number of jars collected.

What does the number of jars collected reflect? Faith. Jesus spoke these words to His disciples in Matthew 7, "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" The reality is that God wants us to ask boldly and He does give good gifts. Demonstrate to God what you think He's capable of.

DO THIS TODAY: Pray boldly.
