    For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, Don't be afraid; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13 WEBWe have a proverb we live by when performing live music: "If you hit a bad note, hit it good." Yes, it should be "hit it well," but that's the phrase I grew up hearing in South Carolin...

    Because he has set his love on me, therefore I will deliver him. I will set him on high, because he has known my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him in trouble. I will deliver him, and honor him. I will satisfy him with long life, and show him my salvation.' Psalm 91...

Darkest Before the Dawn

  • And while he was still speaking with them, the messenger came down to him and said, This trouble is from the LORD! Why should I wait for the LORD any longer? But Elisha said, Hear the word of the LORD: thus says the LORD, Tomorrow about this time' 2Kings 6:33 ESV

    Joram was king when Samaria, the capital city of Israel, was besieged by Syria about 850 BC. Samaria was surrounded and a great famine spread through out the city. People were literally eating each other. This was a very dark time for the people of Samaria and the king begin to blame God.

    Finally the king snapped and decided that if he could not kill God, he would kill the man of God, and set out to find Elisha. Elisha though had a completely different view and told them that by the following day food would be so plentiful that it would cost pennies. What he said came to pass the following day.

    Your breakthrough is waiting near your breaking point. When it looks like you cannot go on and it becomes dark, and you are ready to let God have it with both barrels, you are so close. Don't give up! It is always the darkest right before the dawn.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I ask that you strengthen me and guide me through this time. Lord, I cannot do this without You! Send Your Comforter to me today, in the name of Jesus I pray.

    Note: "And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord's people" (Ephesians 6:18). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Indeed, Elisha's prediction came true, but the king didn't fare so well...he was trampled to death! Just as the prophet said, "You will see it with your own eyes but you will eat none of it" (2 Kinds 7:20)
