|Kingdoms of Israel and Judah|
- Today's reading starts with the siege of Samaria.
- [Elisha] answered, Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them. Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. 2 Kings 6:16-17
- Samaria continued to be under siege. The famin became so severe that families were eating their own children!
- Elisha sends word that the Lord will end the siege but because of the Captain of the Gaurds unbelief he wont eat of the abundance.
- The siege ended.
- Kings come and kings go. We read of more kings dying and new kings who are evil and so the same old things repeat themselves. Ben-hadad dies, Ahaziah is evil and Hazel murders to take the throne.
[Elisha] answered, Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them ... 2 Kings 6:16-17
I often forget that He is for me it's time to stop looking at my circumstances and trust Him
