Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Kings 13 - 14:22)
“Keep Shooting Arrows!”
Text: 2 Kings 13:18
“Then he said, “Take the arrows”; so he took them. And he said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground”; so he struck three times, and stopped.”
“Keep Shooting Arrows,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. The sign of the Arrow of the Lord’s deliverance was an Arrow shot out the open East window toward Syria. This was a sign meant to signify Striking Syria at the target of the location of Aphek!
I believe when Elisha told the king of Israel to “strike the ground,” with the arrows the king shot three arrows out the open East window, and then stopped shooting! The king’s response followed the sign. He didn’t pound the ground three times - he shot three successive arrows out the open East window!
Having been given the sign of the Arrow of the Lord’s deliverance from the enemy - the king should have shot ALL the arrows that he had (at least 5 or 6 in verse 19).
The king’s response to this dramatic promise was “half-hearted Faith,” and he showed this by only shooting 3 arrows and stopping. This angered Elisha and resulted in only 3 victories over Syria instead of total destruction.
This is also a sign for you and I Warrior.
We have been given the Arrows of the Lord’s Deliverance - thousands of them, every verse in the Bible is an Arrow of the Lord’s Deliverance!
Fire These Arrows Many Times!
Not with half-hearted Faith but with Battle Tested Faith!
