Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
2 Kings 1:6 - ’This is what the LORD says: Is there no God in Israel?
Read - 2 Kings 1:1-18, 2 Kings 3:1-27, 1 Kings 22:41-49, 2 Chronicles 20:31-37
Israel is still caught up into seeking god in places where he is not. Now the king is sick and seeking out Baal for help. This is only a few years after the Mt Carmel incident! Surely, we can learn at a faster and more appropriate rate than these stubborn generations…will we?
Lord,I will see You when I am confused, hurt or sick!
Remember, the Moabites play a big part in the story of redemption! Read chapter 1 of Ruth to see how.
The difference between the King’s of Judah and Israel is striking in this text. Israel panics while Judah asks ‘Isn’t there a prophet of God to tell us what to do’. Do you ever find yourself in a panic when God’s Word is nicely bound in leather right next to you? God still speaks through His Word (you can Know) today and will guide you in the right path (you can Serve) if you will seek Him will all your heart (Love Him).
