II Kings 4:26c: And she answered, it is well
(Please read, II Kings 4:8-37)
It Is Well
It is well, is one of the greatest statements of faith, in my opinion, that has ever been verbalized in the very face of the reality of circumstances.
Here is the story of a mother’s faith in action, in one of the trying moments of any parent’s life. She is holding the lifeless body of her promised son, who has been overcome by death. She takes the body of her only son and lays him in the empty bed of her house guest, who stops by her house from time to time to rest and bless. This is the bed of the man servant of God, who is the Prophet Elisha, the one who received the mantle of “anointing “from the Prophet Elijah.
Circumstances have taken a dramatic turn in her life, which requires for her faith to go beyond her normal capacity. She is laying her sons lifeless body, his dead body, in the bed in the upper room chamber, of the Prophet. At this time, a question arises in my mind; when did the statement of faith come alive? Was it when he was in her arms, when she was carrying him up to the room, or when she laid him upon the bed? All I know is that somewhere in the midst of this painful situation, the greater in her stood up. And her actions then began to take on a life all of its own, due to the spoken words, “It Is Well.”
We are walking in the realms of “faith.” After believing God, for many seasons that something is going to happen, and then it does; then out of nowhere something happens that takes the very thing promised you away, faith within in you takes on a life all of its own. You begin to speak things in the atmosphere that causes a chain of reaction, which releases the power of life, coming out of your mouth. This mother declares with boldness, that” All Is Well.”
Death comes in many ways; broken hearts, broken dreams, broken relationships, and yes even broken faith. What happens when one is faced with the reality that it is what it is, you are looking at the very issue? What do you do? Like the woman that has her dead sons body in her arms, let her lead us:
Remember, that the hoped for substance of your faith is now a reality, you are holding the promise in your heart, mind, arms and hands, and the same thing it took to bring it into fruition the first time, is the same thing that will keep it alive. Faith is keeping the atmosphere under the commands of the words spoken out of the mouth of the heart, which declares that, “All Is Well.” No matter what is going on in that moment. So often when we are going through the realness of our lives, we forget to command the atmosphere with the spoken word of power, which is your total belief in the God of the impossible. Times of faith are tested in the trust of what God has said He would do, no matter what happens after what He has said is manifested. Speaking, “All Is Well”, is total trust in what you believed for by faith, and who you believe in to manifest your spoken words!
Like Abraham be fully persuaded that what He has promise, He is able to perform (Romans 4:21). God said it, I believed it by faith, and God performs it to increase my trust/faith in Him. Therefore
” All Is Well!”
