“This is an easy thing in the eyes of the Lord; he will also deliver Moab into your hands.” 2 Kings 3:18.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: 2 Kings 1-3, Psalm 82, and 1 Timothy 1.
How can we not be impressed with God?
The “easy thing” Elisha speaks of is a currently dry valley becoming filled with water with no wind or rain involved. The “bonus” was that the enemy would be defeated.
Both things happened.
The lives of those celebrating God’s Good News are filled with similar things. We don’t notice them. We don’t appreciate them.
We assume that our good deeds have “earned” us blessings. Nothing could be further from the truth. The snow falls on the just and the unjust.
How easy it is to miss God in our daily circumstances. I am in the early summer season in New England. Rain has come and now there is sunshine. Things are growing like crazy! Food is being produced and God (the Gardener) has His Hands in the production. Am I cognizant of this or do I just assume that it somehow happens?
God is in charge on the scene and behind the scenes. I must never underestimate Him. I must never take His goodness to me for granted. He is amazing!
“Lord, thank You for the Bible. Thank You for the stories of Your amazing deeds. Forgive me for leaving You out of my life. Forgive me for underestimating Your power. Alert me to You. Thank You for loving me. You are the Good News!”
You have no obstacle in your life that God cannot remove.
