WHAT HAVE YOU IN THE HOUSE?
By DIGC 22 December 2021
What you have may look like nothing until God moves on it.
SCRIPTURE: And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. 2Kings 4:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you have may look like nothing until God moves on it.
Our anchor scripture is an episode that resulted from the story of a prophet that I believe failed to practice the covenant. Hence, he ended in debt and left liabilities behind for his family (Deuteronomy 28:12).
Now, when this prophet’s widow met with prophet Elisha who had the answer to her misery, the question Elisha asked her was ‘What have you in the house?’ Today, we are going to look at three key thoughts on this life-changing question.
- Everyone has something in the house. This is the meaning: There is no empty human being on the face of the earth. You may be saying pastor, but you are talking about a house. Yes! You are a house. We are God’s building; our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). And Elisha was saying in essence that every single house has something inside. Perhaps you have been lied to by the devil that everyone else is gifted but you are not. This is to encourage you – there is something in you.
- Until what is in your house is revealed, most times, it is not discerned.
There was something in the house that this woman never knew was there until it was pointed out. Moses had a rod in his hand; He did not know the implication of that rod until it was revealed (Exodus 4:2-3).
- What you have may look like nothing until God takes it over.
What you have may look like nothing until God moves on it. Five loaves and two fishes were taken over by the Master and their potentials exploded.
Beloved, pay closer attention to what you have.
Remember this: What you have may look like nothing until God moves on it
- Ask God to reveal the deposits of your life that will cause drastic impact in your generation.
- Look inside you, you will discover a treasure from God within you.
- Cultivate the habit of spending quality time in God’s Presence because hidden potentials are released in God’s Presence.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: The Lord open your eyes in this season to see His deposits in your life in Jesus’ Name.
REFLECTION: Many times, what we take for granted is what has been designed by God to prevent us from being grounded.
