Elisha replied, "Listen to this message from the LORD! This is what the LORD says: By this time tomorrow in the markets of Samaria, five quarts of choice flour will cost only one piece of silver, and ten quarts of barley grain will cost only one piece of silver." - 2 Kings 7:1

Have you been sowing in prayers, praises and through cheerful planting of financial seeds, and it appears as if God is indifferent about your desire for a change of level? Note that when it seems as if God is indifferent about your case, He is working out a miracle that would make your testimony to be exceptionally different and outstanding. Inasmuch as you have not thrust aside your faith and identity as a child of God, God will certainly make your case the thrust of His attention, for a divine visitation. And when God says your case is up for divine intervention, He would prepare the way leading up to your harvest of pleasant surprises.

The Lord God doesn't sleep on the requests of His children neither those He allow their requests to slip through the cracks. Because you have been exhibiting a persistent spirit in your giving, praying, praises and fellowship with God, you have given adequate evidence for the Lord God to showcase you and make your bans to overflow. One of the gateways which leads up to continuous harvest of pleasant surprises is PRAISES. Jehoshaphat and the inhabitants of Judah praised God at a time when such activity didn't add up by all human standards. But because God wanted to raise His standard against the enemies of Judah, He asked that them to live up to a divine spiritual strategy that would usher in the tragedy of their adversaries and lead up to their harvest of spoils of war. In the end, the enemy nations who thought Judah would go down in defeat had the tables turned on them.

Have you received a PROPHECY that your harvest of pleasant surprises is on the way? Even if it appears as if there is no evidence that God would live up to His promise, keep hoping against hope because God cannot lie neither is He laid back. When Elisha prophesied that there would be surplus at the gate of Samaria, at a time when a severe famine was biting heavily on the Samaritans, a senior official in the land allowed his senses to question the power of God's word. Because he cannot see beyond the end of his nose, though he saw the prophecy came through, he didn't partake in the surprise harvest that flooded the land. Has God said that your harvest is on the way? Then don't allow the devil to talk you out of keeping faith alive. Likewise, don't allow your senses to make light of God's prophecy for your life. As you journey through this month, may you reap the harvests God promised you and take back what the devil stole from you, as you keep praying, praising, believing God's prophecies for your life in Jesus name. Happy Independence. Happy new month.
