Good afternoon everyone,
I want to encourage you to find a Bible and read 2 Kings 7; You will find out this is one of the most encouraging and powerful scriptures of the Old Testament. Here you will meet four of the most powerful men in the Old Testament. It’s a story of what happens when HOPE collides with FAITH.
In 2 Kings 7 God’s people were in a time of great tribulation and uncertainty. They needed HOPE but there was none in sight. These four men got creative and put action to their Hope!! They had the revelation if all we do is stop, nothing good will happen and eventually we will die. So, on a glimmer of Hope they went! They journeyed across the way, into the enemy's camp in hopes of getting captured so they could eat.
What happens to these four guys next on their journey is what’s available to all who are willing to mix Faith with every promise in Gods Word. He (God) shows up and takes our glimmer of Hope and Faith and raises it up to His level of Faith and then releases Heaven on earth.
The end result of the four men’s journey was more than they could ever have dreamed of!
“And when these lepers came to the outskirts of the camp, they went into one tent and ate and drank, and carried from it silver and gold and clothing, and went and hid them; then they came back and entered another tent, and carried some from there also, and went and hid it. Then they said to one another, “We are not doing right. This day is a day of good news, and we remain silent." 2 Kings 7:8
Please be encouraged and challenged in this time!! Don’t stop! Keep moving forward in Faith! Don’t lose Hope!
Keep seeking Him and You will find Him! Keep asking Him and He will answer you!!
I promise you this, your journey will be just like the four men in the story, you will find the Good News! Jesus is alive and His desire is to awaken you to the abundant life He has created for you.
