Strange Solutions With Lessons to Teach

A man with a Bible is attacked by a dark lion

The story begins with Elisha in the city of Jericho. The town folk told him that their water is bad and the land is unproductive. Then we read that Elisha knows exactly what has to be done. “Bring me a new bowl” he yells, “and put salt in it.” Then he threw the salt to the spring and the water was healed and the land became productive again (2 Kings 2:22).

This is an example of a strange solution from the Lord but one that has some pretty impressive results. It always amazes me that our Lord never seems to tackle a problem in the same way. Every means of deliverance from problems that God uses is there to teach us something. So one day, it will be put a tree into the waters to take away bitterness. The next it will be strike a rock and it will give you water. Now it is fetch me a bowl and put salt in it! All totally different ways that God has given His people water and all with a distinct purpose in mind! You know, our Lord does not only solve our problems, He also gives the lesson through the solutions to those problems for us to learn and grow.
