The housewife and the prophet

Today we welcome back Sandra Pike as our visiting speaker. She talked about the story of the woman of Shunem and the lessons we can learn.

She pursued God whole-heartedly through his prophet, Elisha.  Do we, who have direct access to God, pursue Him like this?

Elisha had the Spirit, but hadn't gathered enough information to know how God wanted him to bless the woman.  Are we in touch with both God and the world around us enough to be a channel of God's blessing?

The woman knew where to go when disaster struck - she didn't let anyting distract her, but she went to where she knew she could find God.

The woman's husband seems to be passive and stand on the sidelines, contrasting with the woman's active pursuit of God.

What about you?  Are you actively pursuing God?  Are you looking out for how he wants you to bless others?
