Dig Ditches

“Obedience is our responsibility; outcome is God’s.” –Craig Groeschel

Israel and Judah were at war with Moab, but unfortunately they’d run out of water.  Kings Ahab and Jehoshaphat called on the prophet Elisha to ask God for rain.  Elisha told them to dig ditches, and then God would fill the valley with water.  The kings asked for a blessing, and God gave them a work order.  Maybe this request seemed somewhat unusual, but the kings got to digging and God filled their land.  The lesson for them is true for us: hard work and obedience go hand and hand with God’s favor.  We too must dig our ditches to see God do what only He can do.

He then said, “God’s word: Dig ditches all over this valley…” (2 Kings 3:16, MSG)
