God Can Do It in 24 Hours

You may feel like your situation is hopeless, that it is too late for God to come through for you, but I want to encourage your faith. Don’t give up hope. God sees what you are going through, and he will come through for you in ways you never thought possible. The Bible says God’s ways are higher than our ways, and his thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9). Trust him. Nothing is impossible with God. He can give you a breakthrough in twenty-four hours.


Elisha and the people of Samaria found themselves in a seemingly hopeless situation in 2 Kings 6-7. The king of Syria, Ben-hadad, and his entire army besieged Samaria, which was the capital of Israel at the time. The siege lasted so long that Samaria experienced a famine so severe that a donkey’s head was sold for eighty pieces of silver. Israel’s back was against the wall. Whether they surrendered to the Arameans or not, they knew they would die.

But when all hope seemed lost, the Spirit of God came upon Elisha, and he prophesied, “By this time tomorrow in the markets of Samaria, six quarts of choice flour will cost only one piece of silver, and twelve quarts of barley grain will cost only one piece of silver” (2 Kings 7:1 NLT). This seemed absolutely ridiculous. Elisha was literally prophesying that they would get a breakthrough in twenty-four hours.

One of the king’s officers answered the man of God. “That couldn’t happen even if the Lord opened the windows of heaven!” (2 Kings 7:2). But God was working behind the scenes, and he used the most unlikely people to bring about Israel’s deliverance.


The Bible says that there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. They were not allowed inside the city because their disease was very contagious, and they were considered unclean. These four men were the rejects of society. They were the underdogs, and they started talking among themselves. “Why should we sit here waiting to die?” they asked each other. And they decided to take a calculated risk. They reasoned they would die from starvation just sitting there, so they agreed to surrender themselves to the Aramean army. “If they let us live, so much the better. But if they kill us, we would have died anyway” (2 Kings 7:4).

The Bible says they set out at twilight for the Aramean camp, but to their surprise, when they arrived at the camp, no one was there (2 Kings 7:5). “For the Lord had caused the Aramean army to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army approaching” (2 Kings 7:6). The Arameans thought the king of Israel had hired the Hittites and Egyptians to attack them, and they panicked and fled, leaving their tents, horses, and everything they owned. You know they were frightened to death if they left their horses.

The Bible says, “Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight” (2 Kings 7:7 KJV). Notice the very same time the lepers started to make their way to the enemy’s camp was the exact same time God caused the Aramean army to hear the sound of a mighty army. They heard the host of heaven, the angels of God marching by the millions. The Bible says, “The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them” (Psalm 34:7 NKJV).

When you move, when you take a step of faith, God will back you up. Sometimes we think we are waiting on God, but sometimes God is waiting on us. God cannot steer a parked car. Sometimes we have to find God’s will by just taking a step of faith. When God told Abraham to leave his country, and go to a land that he would show him, Abraham obeyed. The Bible says he left, not knowing where he was going (Hebrews 11:8).

Bust the move. Someone once told me that a dog doesn’t even bark at a parked car, so if you aren’t moving, the devil isn’t even studying you. But if he has been barking at you lately that means you’re going somewhere.


So, the four men with leprosy were shocked to find the Aramean’s camp still intact, but the Arameans had fled. And when they went into the first tent, they saw their enemies had left their silver and gold. They left their money. And they saw the table spread with food already prepared, and they ate. And “they went into one tent after another, eating and drinking wine; and they carried off silver and gold and clothing and hid it” (2 Kings 7:8). These lepers entered a moment where they experienced one breakthrough after another. They went from famine to feasting, from lack to abundance in a matter of moments.

And they ran and told the gatekeepers who told the king. Soon the entire city was rushing out, plundering the Aramean camp. And the Word God gave to Elisha was fulfilled. “So it was true that six quarts of choice flour were sold that day for one piece of silver, and twelve quarts of barley grain were sold for one piece of silver, just as the Lord had promised” (2 Kings 7:16).

God can do it in twenty-four hours. He did it for Joseph. He did it for these four leprous men, and he can do it again. He does not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

It does not matter what you are facing. Nothing is too hard for God. He will make a way out of no way – even if he has to split the Red Sea, dry the Jordan River, make the sun “stand still”, send an earthquake to open your prison doors, or cause your enemies to hear the sound of a great army. He is the God of the impossible. He hears the cry of his people, and he will turn your situation around.  

So, take a step of faith and trust God because you are about to enter into a season of open doors. Things that were not working out for you before are suddenly going to start working. The trap that your enemies set for you, God will cause them to fall in it. He will prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23:5). And he will take the wealth of the wicked and give it to the just (Proverbs 13:22). Get ready. God is about to blow your mind. He will give you such a powerful breakthrough, you will think you are dreaming (Psalm 126:1). Dare to put your faith out there. God cannot ignore faith. He can do it in twenty-four hours!
