There were 3 kings that allied themselves together to get one of them out of trouble, but eventually, they got themselves into more trouble when they reach the dead end of their journey within seven days.
The kings and their soldiers were dehydrated and they needed water, including their animal.

One of them (Jehoshaphat) quickly realized that there is only one way for them to overcome their predicament and that is by God intervention. However, they could not do anything unless they see a prophet to connect them to God and tell them exactly what to do.

The prophet they got was reluctant to inquire from the Lord for them.
Because they have other prophets, though many of those ones were of Baal. But because of Jehosaphat Elisha inquired from the Lord for them.

How? He asks them to give him what God requires to communicate to his own, Minstrel (musician)

“And Elisha said, “ As the Lord of hosts lives, before whom I stand, surely were it not that I regard the presence of Jehoshaphat king of Judah, I would not look at you, nor see you. But now bring me a musician.” Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the Lord came upon him.
And he said, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Make this valley full of ditches.’ For thus says the Lord: ‘You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water, so that you, your cattle, and your animals may drink.’ And this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord; He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand. II Kings 3:14‭-‬18

Thank God for prophet Elisha he made their journey successful. Permit me to say it that way.

However, if you’re a born again child of God you don’t need any prophet to inquire from the Lord for you on anything anymore.

Jesus says,
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father.
Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:27‭-‬30

All you need now is to accept Jesus Christ invitation, turn yourself to a thanksgiver and praise worshiper, make a decision to always follow the directions of the Holy Spirit and let your journey to the glorious land begin in Jesus name.
