Journal Through the Bible: Week 52 Wednesday

II Kings chapter 7

Because of God, the Syrians were hearing things! They fled in haste and left all their food and belongings behind!

Does God issue any commands?

  • No.

Does God make any promises?

  • Through Elisha God promised that on the very next day there would be abundant food being sold.
  • One of the king's chief lords who doubted God's promise was told that he would see the food that God provided but that he would not eat it.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • God miraculously provided for the hunger and thirst of the people. Jesus told all who are hungry and thirsty to come to Him because He is both the Bread of Life and the Water of Life. Those who come to Him will never be spiritually hungry or thirsty again.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Those of us who have exchanged spiritual leprosy and starvation for the Bread of Life will one day eternally feast upon the bounty that God so richly provides for His people!

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
