Elisha Multiplies the Widow’s Oil

2 Kings 4
Elisha multiplies the widow’s oil.

“When you do your part, the Lord adds His power to your efforts”
-President Henry B Eyring-

These bottles of water provided an effective visual for this lesson.
The small bottle represents the  amount of oil the widow had when she met Elisha.
She was almost out of oil with no hope of having more.
She was in great debt and it appeared the only solution to pay her debts was to have her sons become enslaved to her creditors to work off the debt.
Elisha told her to borrow many vessels from her neighbors and bring them to her house.
She obeyed the Prophet Elisha, even though it did not seem to be a solution to her great debt.
I had multiple cups/vessels on the table and tried to fill them using the small water bottle.
Only 2 were filled. Then I brought out the large water bottle and every vessel was filled.

 Elisha performed a miracle and multiplied the widow’s oil so every vessel could be filled and her sons could go sell the oil. They made enough money to pay the debts and be able to live comfortably without having to leave their mother.

We are all this widow, in need of the Lord’s blessings and miracles in our lives. He is ready to pour down blessings and bring miracles to our lives as we exercise faith and obedience.
