II Kings 4:2 ” Elisha replied to her, ‘How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?’ “

A desperate, grieving widow of a fellow prophet came to Elisha beseeching him to help her before the creditors took her two boys away to satisfy her debts.  But instead of offering help, Elisha turned the question back on her.  What do you have in your house…what do you have within yourself?  The Lord has already placed within us everything we’ll ever need to be victorious over any situation.  Elisha wanted the widow to realize the wealth and power she already  possessed.
