1 Kings 4:8-37
The Shunammite woman:
- Served without expectation
- Showed hospitality
- Promoted the work of God
- Showed a high level of discernment
Because she lived in this way, Elisha wanted to reward her. (v. 11-13)
The woman’s response was…I’m good!
- She had a willing contentedness
Her greatest desire was something she had no hope of having, a child. (v.14-17)
- God blesses her with a child.
The fallenness of this world took her son. (v. 18-21)
The faithfulness of this woman and of Elisha are honored by God bringing the boy to life once more. (v. 22-37)
Main Point: We can’t force God make things happen in our lives, but we can make space for Him to work miraculously.
