2 Kings 13 ~ "My Father, my Father!"

Jesus Christ
Acts 3:15

Father God is the Author of Life. God could have designed the 7 days of the week to always be Sunday and Sabbath. This is absolutely within His reach. Instead, Jesus says this:

Mark 2:27
Then he said to them, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.

We are not without the Holy Spirit on Monday to Saturday. In fact, we should search our soul, heart, mind for Jesus in the events around us. Bringing us to the message - we are to bring our souls to Jesus and say, "This is what I did with the soul You gave me, Father. I believe in Jesus Christ, Your only Son, my Savior."

When we find something leading us to be the Children of God, we should stop and lean to our Father. Here is something this week leaning to Father God. It's not God, but we can take sincere thought and do as Jesus says, "Rise."

And where will we take these thoughts? To God and His Word. The Purposes of the Lord are our Hope and Future. Find the Word of God - Jesus - in life around you.


So, my family listens to the TWUMC all the time. On You Tube. We hear Jesus loves, loves, loves you - abide in God. And this Sunday we heard Reach for what matters.

So here is the Secular giving us Inspiration. One of my personal motivational moments was checking out of Sam's Club. The sweet check-out lady reached over and said, "God has given you what you need - TODAY. Be a Blessings Seeker." You know - this has motivated me for 6 years. Changed my life. See what you are GIVEN. Be Grateful. I'm pretty sure the Holy Spirit reached out.

This last week was tough - my mom has Alzheimer's. And is pretty confused. She is on and she is off. Edward is holding On. He has placed in 2 A Tier Disc Golf tournaments - he is retired having been diagnosed with Frontal Temperal Dementia. All the Grabbing - Give Us This Day - Has Made Edward Happy and Grateful Every Day.

Taking what you have - making Life. Being Filled With God.




The front of the video - has nothing to do with the message.




Where we will stand to launch from:


2 Kings 13


14 Now when Elisha had fallen sick with the illness of which he was to die, Joash king of Israel went down to him and wept before him, crying, "My father, my father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!"

15 And Elisha said to him, "Take a bow and arrows."

So he took a bow and arrows. 16 Then he said to the king of Israel, "Draw the bow," and he drew it. And Elisha laid his hands on the king's hands.

17 And he said, "Open the window eastward," and he opened it.

Then Elisha said, "Shoot," and he shot.

And he said, "The LORD's arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Syria! For you shall fight the Syrians in Aphek until you have made an end of them."

18 And he said, "Take the arrows," and he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, "Strike the ground with them." And he struck three times and stopped.

19 Then the man of God was angry with him and said, "You should have struck five or six times; then you would have struck down Syria until you had made an end of it, but now you will strike down Syria only three times."

20 So Elisha died, and they buried him. Now bands of Moabites used to invade the land in the spring of the year. 21 And as a man was being buried, behold, a marauding band was seen and the man was thrown into the grave of Elisha, and as soon as the man touched the bones of Elisha, he revived and stood on his feet.

22 Now Hazael king of Syria oppressed Israel all the days of Jehoahaz. 23 But the LORD was gracious to them and had compassion on them, and he turned toward them, because of his covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and would not destroy them, nor has he cast them from his presence until now. 24 When Hazael king of Syria died, Ben-hadad his son became king in his place.

25 Then Jehoash the son of Jehoahaz took again from Ben-hadad the son of Hazael the cities that he had taken from Jehoahaz his father in war.

Three times Joash defeated him and recovered the cities of Israel.

We were blessed to have this Sermon on Sunday.

Of one thing we can be certain. All have fallen short of the Glory of God. And in learning this, we will find ourselves disappointed in all people at one time or another. And if we had to rely upon our own good intentions and goodness - we wouldn't save ourselves. We will even let ourselves down. And really need to see our own motivation to God.

God has said Rise up.

If Joash had known King David well, or if Joash had been one of the People of the New Covenant - We the Easter People - Joash would have known to have fallen, himself, on the Grace of God for Mercy. Catholic Saints are historically created from three miracles found at the saint's grave site. Why would this be? This is just a human being. It'a fine, good and important question. We will never find the grave perfectly identifying where Jesus was briefly buried. Jesus Christ is alive and working. His Hope renews every day. What we find at the saint's body is the Promise of God.


Deuteronomy 31:6
"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

We are seeing - the Light of God. The Grave that is empty. We see as we Believe we point to Jesus. We are saying Prayer of other's strengthen us. God loves us to know God goes with us. And in all times, what we have found is God has us. Jesus will be our Help. The Holy Spirit our Helper.

What we have.

We have our own Arrow. Our Daily Bread. Living Bread.

We have the Name of Jesus. We have this Day. We are Given this Day.

Today our Love, our heart, our mind, our soul will connect to Jesus in Prayer. We will have in study, in music, in prayer life, in our souls - we will have two-way communication with our Father God. Our Arrow will not fall away. Our Trust is in Jesus every day.

All the Days of our Eternal Life.








Abba,

We know days can be difficult. And we know where we will put our Trust.

Father, Lord God has called me from the womb,
from the body of my mother, he named my name.


Our God has made mouths, we sometimes use a sharp sword.

We would want His Mercy and Refuge in the shadow of His Hand, He hid me



Our Father God has made me a polished arrow; in His quiver, He hid me away.

 And He said to me, “You are my servant,
Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”


Days may come.
I have said, “I have labored in vain;
I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the Lord,
and my recompense with my God.”

And now the Lord says,
He who formed me from the womb to be His servant

for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord,
and my God has become my strength—
He says:
“It is too light a thing that you should be my servant
I will make you as a light for the nations,
that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

Thus says the Lord,
the Redeemer of Israel and his Holy One

because of the Lord, who is faithful,
the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.”

The Restoration of Israel
Thus says the Lord:
“In a time of favor I have answered you;
in a day of salvation, I have helped you

Sing for joy, O heavens, and exult, O earth;
break forth, O mountains, into singing!
For the Lord has comforted his people
and will have compassion on his afflicted.

Then all flesh shall know
that I am the Lord your Savior,
and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob


For this Great a Salvation
We would cover ourselves in the Name of Jesus,
we would cover those we Love.
we would cover all the people God has given us.

We would cover this Nation,
our employments, Churches and communities.

We would cover all the Nations trusting in God in the Name of Jesus.
And have the Arrows of prayer, always soar and cover God's good Creation.
Yesterday, today and tomorrow - more Heaven on earth with God's Kingdom,
Power
and Glory.

In Jesus Christ. Amen.

About scripture-for-today.blogspot.com/

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He has saved all who call upon His name and rely on Him for His Grace. The Scriptures are living & active and are for understanding the Lord Almighty. Biblical readings are chosen from the Ecumenical Christian Church and the Nicene Council, 325 A.D., approved Apocrypha. People remember not just from reading, but by sight and orally- an image has been added as well as audio readings. God tends to link the passages together with fascinates - this blogger, Anne-Laurel Gardere

About Me

My photo
Email registry at bottom.! “All Scripture is inspired by God” (2 Timothy 3:16). Men “moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God” (2 Peter 1:21). The Holy Spirit carried men along, moving and guiding them as they wrote in their own words what God wanted them to say. The Bible is unique; comprised of 80 separate books, & written over a period of thousands of years by more than 40 writers with one Author, spanning the centuries, different states of peace & war & different situations in life. The Bible answers the question: of who is God, who is man & what can their relationship can be. Although the Bible was written on perishable material and copied by hand for many centuries, its accuracy is not in doubt, proven by Dead Sea Scrolls and papyrus from 2,000 years. The Bible has survived persecution & criticism to be read with great interest in each generation. The Bible gives witness to the greatness of the Creator. A loving Father concerned for all of his creation. With each verse of the bible witnessing to God is love and the multitude & vastness of His attributes. The Bible was written for you. <><
