Default God wants to use Empty Vessels
II Kings ch. 4 (KJV)
1: Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
(She is telling the man of God her problem.)

2: And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
(The man of God is asking her what she needs.)

3: Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.
(The man of God tells her what to do.)

4: And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.
(The man of God tells her how to receive the blessing.)

5: So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.
(She starts receiving the blessings from God.)

6: And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
(God keeps blessing her.)

7: Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.
(God is still blessing her, while He is blessing her.)


God wants people to be like empty vessels. So He can fill them up with what He knows they need.
