2 Kings 4:38-41 KJV
“And Elisha came again to Gilgal: and there was a dearth in the land; and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets”.
[39] “And one went out into the field to gather herbs, and found a wild vine, and gathered thereof wild gourds his lap full, and came and shred them into the pot of pottage: for they knew them not”.
[40] “So they poured out for the men to eat. And it came to pass, as they were eating of the pottage, that they cried out, and said, O thou man of God, there is death in the pot. And they could not eat thereof”.
[41] “But he said, Then bring meal. And he cast it into the pot; and he said, Pour out for the people, that they may eat. And there was no harm in the pot”.



☆☆☆ This was the story of how the sons of the prophets, servants of Elisha, were hungry after a training exercise.
☆☆☆ Elisha had asked one of the servants to prepare food for them.
☆☆☆ Elisha might have trusted the servant he asked to prepare food for others, as his best cook.
☆☆☆ The servant too would have wanted to do his best to satisfy his colleagues.
☆☆☆ He went to the bush to gather leaves but innocently gathered a wrong leaf.
☆☆☆ At the point of eating, it was discovered there was death in the pot.
☆☆☆ The anointing of God upon the life of Elisha turned death in the pot to life in the pot.

☆☆☆ We are not discussing “death in the pot” today but the Holy Spirit wants to teach us something different.
☆☆☆ The servant who prepared the meal made an innocent mistake which resulted into “death in the pot”.
☆☆☆ His mistake was converted to a miracle.
☆☆☆ A mistake is what you missed to take (mis-take)

*3 lessons to learn quickly from this story:*


☆☆☆ The servant would have learnt from his mistake because we never read he made such a mistake again.
☆☆☆ If we don’t learn from our mistakes, there is the possibility of repeating it again and again.

Listen to 👇
☆☆☆ A young cashier in the bank asked her CEO one day, “sir I want to be successful as you, what do I do”.
☆☆☆ The CEO replied, “right decisions”.
☆☆☆ The lady asked again, “how do I learn to make right decisions”.
☆☆☆ The boss replied, “Experience”.
☆☆☆ The lady still confused asked, “how do I get experience”.
☆☆☆ Finally the CEO thundered, “Bad decisions”.

☆☆☆ Beloved, we gain experience from bad decisions to be able to take right decisions.


☆☆☆ Looking back at our focal scriptures for today, no one remembered the teachings of Elisha to the sons of the prophet but we are reading about the miracle today.
☆☆☆ One can now say, thank God the servant made that mistake because it gave birth to one of Elisha’s greatest miracles.
☆☆☆ There are certain occurrences in your life that you may consider as mistakes but they are set ups for a divine promotion.


☆☆☆ No one after that meal complained of stomach ache but they were all talking about the miracle of Elisha.
☆☆☆ That was how God turned a poisonous meal to a meal of life.
☆☆☆ God can still turn your mis-takes to your takes.
☆☆☆ He can convert your blunders to blessings.

☆☆☆ There are certain mistakes we make, if they haven’t turned out as mistakes, we would have claimed the testimonies thereafter as our success.
