There are times when a prophecy of impending bad news cannot be averted with prayer. The only thing you can do is to relocate and avoid the implications of the prophecy.

Elisha the Prophet prophesied of a seven-year famine that was to affect the land of Israel. The solution was not prayer, but relocation.

2 Kings 8:1

“Now Elisha had said to the woman whose son he had restored to life, “Go away with your family and stay for a while wherever you can, because the Lord has decreed a famine in the land that will last seven years.”

Sometimes, you may find yourself in a place where things are not working out. You could try and change the situation by working harder, studying, looking for a job, fasting or hoping.

A simple relocation could be the answer to a marital, financial or spiritual drought.

The Prophet asked the woman to change her location to avert the famine. He did not even utter a prayer.

Pray to God for wisdom and counsel, because sometimes the answer to your problem could be a simple relocation!
