Our favorite verse in 2 Kings Chapter 4 is:
The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.” (2 Kings 4:1 NIV)
Trials and Blessings
- The sons and daughters of God also suffer from loss of loved ones. These can often also affect the finances, security and family unity among other things.
- Pray for those that have experience the loss of a loved one and give them company.
- In chapter 4 we see 4 miracles performed for the benefit of God’s children. A.) Saves children from being taken as slaves. B.) Increases the happiness of marriage for a couple. C.) Brings the dead back to life. D.) Multiplication of food.
Loving Father, Over all the pain of losing a loved one and experiencing suffering and need in our lives, we ask you to continue to give bless us with the precious gifts for your children, that our needs may be fulfilled in abundance for your honor and glory.
