Elisha #6

Sebastian's wife is pregnant so this weekend they will return to Poaquil to live where they grew up meaning he will drive here everyday and no longer be here at night. But I cerainly understand.

Gladys had all the boys from the 18 oldest in Vencedores through university measured for pants for Christmas. Then we worked on the drama for graduation.

These are girls who not only had good grades but excellant behaviour.

The life of Elisha would contain 14 miracles which are double the 7 of Elijah. The double portion he asked for was given. His miracles included healings of sickness, financial needs, raising the dead and hunger. It shows us that God does not prevent his children from having problems. If you breathe you will have trials and tribulations.

The problems we experience are to allow us to learn and grow. Trials can increase your faith if you are obedient. God is willing to help us in our problems. II Corinthians 9:8 says, “God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things, having all you need, you will abound in every good work.”

His lifework was to share with people about keeping the requirements God expects so that we will experience the blessings in living by faith.

Through the ministry of Elisha and the other prophets the people would learn and be blessed. He demonstrated the compassion and love of God for people. “People” means you and me.

He served as a prophet for more than 50 years. The miracle he is most remembered for was the healing of Namaan, the Syrian leader of leprosy.

Elisha teaches me personally that God loves me and is willing to help me, protect me and allow me to be used by Him in ministry to my family and others. Every Christian should build on those who went before them. Then we should leave this world having achieved what God desired so others can build upon that labor of love.
