FAITH THAT WORKS
• ONLY GOD CAN SEND THE WATER,
BUT SOMETIMES HE WANTS YOU TO
DIG A DITCH.
Jehoshaphat knew: one word
from God can change
everything.
If it hadn’t been for King
Jehoshaphat who knew the power
of a word from God they would
have all died in the wilderness.
IT’S GOING TO TAKE US
“DIGGING SOME DITCHES!”
These Three Kings were
“DESPERATE IN A DESPERATE
SITUATION!”
God lays it on Elisha’s heart what
He, the Lord will do to rescue
them:
All they must do is dig some
ditches…dig a ditch!
Proverbs 16:3
Commit thy works unto the Lord
and thy thoughts shall be
established.
Putting faith into action…that’s the
principle here! Don’t just say you have
faith!
James 2:18
But someone will say: “You have
faith; I have deeds.” Show me your
faith without deeds, and I will show
you my ...
You are the one who
determines how deep and how
wide is his provisions
FAITH THAT WORKS
• REAL FAITH BELIEVES BIG BUT IS
WILLING TO START SMALL.
James 2:26
Just as the body is dead without
breath, so also faith is dead
without good works. NLT
Elisha followed Elijah and
started out as his helper or
servant.
1 Kings 19:21
"...Then he arose, and went after
Elijah, and ministered unto
him..."
Zechariah 4:10
Do not despise these small

to see the work begin… NLT
