2 Kings 3:16-17. and he said, “This is what the Lord says, Make many cisterns in this valley, for this is what the Lord says, You will not feel any wind or see any rain, but this valley will be full of water and you and your cattle and animals will drink.

The people needed water. They hadn’t seen rain in a long time. They prayed for rain. God instructed them to show their faith by digging cisterns to catch the rain. They did this in spite of no sign of rain coming. They did this in obedience to God and faith that He is true to His word of supplying their needs. Our question is when we pray and ask God do we pray in faith? Do we live according to the assurance that God will indeed answer our prayers and supply our needs? Let’s get really honest with ourselves about our faith level and obedience level. Honesty will open us up to the workings of God’s Holy Spirit to water and fertilize the seed of faith in us and bring it growth.
