TAKE TIME: January 27 - February 1, 2014 Schedule

Introduction: Elisha is the prophet in Israel who succeeded Elijah. During his ministry he healed Naaman, a captain in the Syrian army, who had taken an Israelite girl captive. He also did several miracles. Some say that he worked twice as many miracles as did Elijah and that this is because he asked for and obtained double the spirit of Elijah.

Prayer Journal (ACTS)
  • Adoration - Praise God that He is omniscient. Nothing ever surprises God!
  • Confession - Ask God to reveal hidden sin in your life and then confess it.
  • Thanksgiving - Thank God for any answers to your prayers.
  • Supplication - What are your prayer requests this week? List them for future reference so that you can see how God answers.

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action

Last week we read about one of the miracles of Elisha. He asked God to give a son to the woman and man in Shunem who kept a guest chamber in their home for his use. There are many childless couples today who desire children. In keeping with the time around the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday and in the spirit of Elijah this would be a good time to help your local pregnancy center. If you cannot volunteer to work there perhaps you could give a monetary donation. Or perhaps you know of a family that has recently adopted a child and you could provide the new parents with a date night by giving them event tickets and free babysitting while they are at the event.

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