We have heard over and over again that we are to make room for what God is about to pour out upon us. We cry out for more, we want more, but more of what? If you are making room for more, knowing what you want more of determines what you will make. If you want more children, you make more bedrooms in the house. If you want more friends you make more room in your schedule to spend time with people. If you want more of God, you must make Him a prophet’s chamber in your heart so when His voice comes by, it has a place to stay.
2 Kings 4 speaks of this very thing, “Now there came a day when Elisha passed over to Shunem, where there was a prominent woman, and she persuaded him to eat food. And so it was, as often as he passed by, he turned in there to eat food. She said to her husband, “Behold now, I perceive that this is a holy man of God passing by us continually. Please, let us make a little walled upper chamber and let us set a bed for him there, and a table and a chair and a lampstand; and it shall be, when he comes to us, that he can turn in there.”
Prophet means one who speaks the words of God. She knew God’s word was passing by and she literally made room for it to come and stay. The voice of God is always passing by us, but the question is, have you made room for it to come and stay inside of you? If you want more of God, create a prophets chamber in your heart so when you hear His word at church, over coffee with a friend, on a t-shirt, in a song or while reading your Bible, you have a room ready for that word to come and stay.
