Elisha tells them to go dig ditches (in King James Version). God is able to provide water and rain for these men. However, many times it is our duty to learn from our faith and hard work before the miracle arrives. After they dug the ditches, God filled the ditches with over flowing water to nourish the troops and their animals. Then, they were able to defeat Moab successfully.
Can you imagine what those kings thought of Elisha when they asked for water, and he told them to go dig ditches? However, they did obey and through faith God provided. What ditch are we supposed to be digging right at this moment so we too can get the nourishment we need to conquer our goal?
