A Journey to Victorious Praying
Finished chapter 23, on fasting, and read 24, on waiting on the Lord. Thrasher said that waiting on the Lord was not as much an activity as an attitude and suggested that when the Lord rebuked Martha, it was her distracted, worried, and bothered attitude, not her service, that was called into question.
2 Kings 6
6.18 blindness I wonder if this might have been some kind of lack of awareness instead of an inability to see anything. I can't imagine someone agreeing to be led to a military mission if they couldn't see. This kind of blindness would be a good illustration of the spiritual blindness of the lost today. They just don't have a clue. I need to check the Hebrew sometime to see if that is the case.
2 Kings 7
7.2 "you shall see it with your eyes, but you shall not eat of it." What a sad punishment. I want to see and taste.
7.19 "Now look, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, could such a thing be?" He lacked Abraham's faith. We don't have to have a solution in mind to have faith.
2 Kings 8
8.1 Preachers often criticize Ruth for doing the same things. It seems that Elijah wouldn't have to her to live elsewhere if it was against the law to do so.
8.10 This is a hard one to figure out.
8.18 Be very careful who you marry!
8.26 Scary music time in the movie. Athaliah was "a real piece of work."
