It's Amazing What People Do and Don't Do (9 of 9)
Series: Elisha

2 Kings 6-7


Intro/Attention

Today, we conclude our series on the life of Elisha. We have truly seen a life of amazing faith. And I pray that you have been challenged to live in faith and obedience to the Lord and His Word.

2 Kings 6:24 -7:20 is one story and it is quite an amazing story. We will be introduced to a huge problem, and then we will see God do an amazing miracle. A miracle is what happens when God supernaturally steps in to your situation. God still does this today. He still works miracles.

To believe that God is greater and He has the ability to solve any problem you have. READ 2 Kings 6:24-25, 7:1-2, 16-20

A little bit down the road, they passed a third person. That person said, ''Look at that young boy making that old man walk while he rides. He is younger and stronger.'' Yet again, the old man thought that the point was valid. The next person who saw them looked on in disbelief as the donkey was riding on the old man's back. When you try to please everybody, you will go stark raving mad.
