Greetings everyone! Today I found a bookmark I was given by Sunset International Bible Institute. It was given at a banquet shortly before graduation day. It was to remind us (and others who were there) to remember God is with us and is on our side.
It was a reminder of the lesson that was preached that night from 2 Kings 6:8-23.
This is the story of Elisha and his servant going off somewhere. The king of the Arameans found out where they were and sent his armies to capture them. When Elisha’s servant went out of the house where they stayed went outside, he saw all the army. His eyes must have been as big as a plate. He runs back and tells Elisha. But Elisha tells him not to worry, those who are on our side are more than those who are on theirs.
Then Elisha prays for his servant’s eyes to be opened. They are and he sees the army of the Lord God almighty surrounding the Aramean army. The lead angel blinds the whole Aramean army and Elisha leads them all to a secret place. Then Elisha and his servant set a feast before their enemies and win them over.
I love this story! As we stated before, this shows that God is on the side of those who serve Him. Also, the best way to defeat your enemy is make him your friend.
God’s richest blessings to all my family and friends! A special shout out to my Sunset classmates and teachers.
As always, any and all comments, thoughts, questions, etc are welcomed and encouraged.
God bless us all. Grace and Peace.
