    Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, 'Come! Let's meet together in the villages in the plain of Ono.' But they intended to harm me. I sent messengers to them, saying, 'I am doing a great work, so that I can't come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and come down to you?' Nehemiah 6...

Website Migration:

Notice: We will be migrating to our new website over the next week, and hopefully things like email delivery will improve. During the transition, no emails will be sent. The latest devotional is always posted at the top of the devotional list. So bookmark it, create a shortcut, make it your homepage, or write the URL down on a napkin so you can find it later :)

 

Notice 4/13/24: The new RHM website is live and ready! This current site will be replaced on Sunday evening 4/14. You can sign into the new website and subscribe to the devotional now. Here is the link to getting started. The live service will take place here on Sunday morning before the move. Thank you for your patience and prayers during this transition!

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)
