"IT IS WELL"

The remarkable faith and courage of the Shunammite woman which enabled her to declare, "It is well," as she faced the death of her small son, has inspired untold thousands for centuries. We are told in II Kings that instead of accepting the material evidence she hastened to Elisha for help. We read (4:25, 26): "And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunammite: run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well."

The Shunammite woman's answer revealed to Elisha that she had glimpsed the truth of his teachings, and had gained spiritual faith in the power of God. Accordingly, it was not only Elisha's spiritual understanding of divine Life, but also her enlightened faith which brought about the healing of her son.
