Using 2 Kings 3:9-20 as his text, church planter Steven Furtick spoke of how Elisha prepared for God’s provision: he dug ditches. Then God filled them with water.
“If you want to see the land filled with water, dig some ditches.”
As pastors, we are prone to look at the success of other churches and look for the secret formula. What is the ONE THING we can beg, borrow, or steal that will unlock our growth?
We see their success and forget that they spent much effort digging ditches. They prayed, prepared, and did their home work. And God blessed their ditch digging.
