Elisha sees the hills full of God’s army. There is much more going on in reality than we suspect. What if we lived our lives with this in mind. God give us sight.
Naaman seeks healing from Elisha. When Naaman sets his pride aside he is transformed, physically and spiritually. God does amazing things from the most humble and faithful.
God uses Elisha to provide, heal and to point to Jesus. God will use what little we have to make much. Be tenacious an trusting in faith. – All is well with my soul –
Elijah invests in the next generation, he calls Elisha to the service of God. Elisha, “burns the yokes” of his past and asks for double blessings of the Lords spirit. God blesses a nation through revival. Pray for revival in our land.
The time of Elijah was very different than now, but humans are not so different. We need to know who God is and who we are. Ask God to help us identify our idols and take them to task.
God provides! We look at a story of how God provides for Elijah in remarkable ways Though God’s provision for you will not likely come from ravens dropping food He will provide generously and powerfully in your life.
We tend to think of Old Testament times as so different from our own – full of strange, old-fashioned problems that we might have trouble relating to in our modern era. When we take a closer look, though, we find that our times are not much different from theirs in some of the most important ways. Sure, our lives are different because of technology and modern conveniences, but the challenge of where we should place our hope and the battle between the true God and rival gods remains. Our times have their own false gods that demand our allegiance and tempt us to turn our eyes away from the living God. We will be looking at a key story each week from the lives of Elijah and Elisha in 1 and 2 Kings. These stories will help us understand and remember how to place our faith firmly in the true God in a time of widespread unbelief.

Hebrews 11:13-19 It takes faith to follow God’s call and hold on to your convictions in spite of the circumstances.
Too often it is easiest to focus on the negative things in life. We lose focus of what is most important, and we begin to focus on our circumstances. Fear can have some long-reaching consequences, as we will learn from this week’s story.
Have you ever walked into a thick fog? From the outside it looks so dense! Once you step foot inside the fog, you realize it is not what it seemed from the outside. Fear is similar. When we dissect our fears, we will discover that there is no substance to it.
The story of Esther is a the story of a young woman with great courage. She was brought up from obscurity and put into a place of influence. She faced many fearful events in her life, but she was able to face her fears and use her divine appointment for great good.
In our series “Fearless” we explore the conflict between fear and faith (or fear and courage). This week we look at the story of Moses and his example.
