The King of Aram, Ben Hadad, besieged Samaria with his entire army. This military action triggered an unprecedented famine in the city. At that time people ate human flesh for survival. The King of Israel was passing by when two women who agreed to cook and eat each other's son fought over the decision of one of them to renege after the other person's son had been killed. It was a devastating experience. The King had no solution to the crisis. Why? Only God has the answer. Only God can deliver a man in such dire situation.
Are you in a dire situation? Our true and living God who delivers to the uttermost will deliver you, if only you believe.
The King of Israel threatened to kill Prophet Elisha because of the famine. Why was the King's anger not directed at the Assyrian King that besieged Samaria with his troops? Perhaps he felt the prophet of God close to God should have called on God to have mercy on Israel and stop the famine. Prophet Elisha issued a decree in the Name of the Lord. It was the decree that brought 24 hour miracle: ".Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria." And this came to pass.
