There is a portion of the scriptures that strikes me very much, and it is the story of the Shunammite’s son, to whom Elisha sent his servant with his staff to resuscitate him, but nothing happened. And finally, the same prophet Elisha came to the scene to resurrect the child. The way he did it was somewhat strange, because the story says that the boy was dead, lying on the bed (2 Kings 4:34) and the prophet lay on him, connecting mouth to mouth, eye to eye and hand to hand. He did this 7 times until the boy took heat in his body and finally the boy sneezed and opened his eyes.
God ministered to me through this word many things, but the one I want to leave in your heart today is that, in the same way that the prophet, he sought to connect with this child, mouth to mouth, eye to eye and hand to hand, in this same way God is seeking to connect about His children today. For a long time as a church, we neglect many things, we let many others die, and perhaps many things are in us as that child was, without life. But God continues to search for His children. The religion and structures of man that we have followed until today have nothing to offer us, none of that gave us life. Rather, it led us to leave behind a true relationship with God and taught us to depend more on human programs and structures. We change the fire of his presence for structured and entertaining programs, we change power and revelation, for vain knowledge and hermeneutics. We stop looking for the kingdom and its justice, to go after the additions.
And today the Spirit asks us: How long? How long do you settle for a relationship through others instead of reaching out and becoming intimate with me? Until when do you decide to look for what I have for you as a son? Until when do you come to get closer because you want to know me, more than you want my blessings? Do you dare to say today: Lord, with or without blessings, you are my desire and I choose you? Can you say like David: as the deer roars for the waters, so my soul cries out for you? Today He wants to connect with his children, mouth to mouth, eye to eye, hand to hand, and heart to heart. He wants to give you directly of what He is. That you take today from the source of his life, that you submerge yourself in the waters of his love, that his light inhabits every space of your being. He wants his glory to shine on you, to be seen by those who have not known him. The earth groans, waiting for the manifestation of his children. The children’s tempo is now. Connect with the Father and let him fill you with his life, the one that only He has and knows how to give it to you. Blessings.
