TOPIC: God’s Mercy

OPENING PRAYER: Make my life oh Lord a reflection of you as I study your word.

SCRIPTURE: 2 Kings 13:1-25

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• Q 3: Is there any command for me to obey?

Notice the effect of bad leaders on the welfare of society (vs.2-3, 11). There is a strong connection between the evil that King Jehoahaz did and the anger of God against Israel (vs.2-3). Despite his evil ways, God in His great mercy, heard his prayer and sent a deliverer because He cared for Israel (v.4). Many plead with God and repent because of their sufferings. When the Lord delivers them, they go back to their sins because their repentance was half-hearted. Israel behaved in like manner time and time again.

Note the consequences of their abominable ways and false worship of the true God (v7).
Elisha, the prophet, was ill for quite some time before he died (v.14). Is it possible for the man of God to be sick, or to die from an illness despite fervent prayers? Notice that Elisha continued to advise and guide the king to the end of his life (vs.15-20). He died from his illness, but even after his death, the Lord’s power continued to work through him miraculously. Nothing is impossible to the true God.

Practice/Word Application
So what? Our God is sovereign, and He allows pain as well as healing in our lives. Focus your prayer today on that area in your life where you want to see God’s power at work.
