Here is the ninth installment! I’m really enjoying this series. I should have, but I never did know the amazing grace and marvelous power demonstrated through God’s prophet Elisha! I’m happy to be studying the life of this magnificent servant of God.
Of course, faith in God’s word is a divinely given thing. You can’t reason people actually at the end of the day into believing what God has said. Faith is divinely given. But when you have that divinely given faith, the sneers of unbelievers actually mean that you believe harder than you did before, as did the prophet Elisha here.
It is good to have these tests of faith… God uses them to not only make us stronger in Him, but to reassure us of our salvation when we need it!
