You know, sometimes reading the Bible is like watching a good “soap opera” – (I know…good soap opera…oxymoron).
But the Bible isn’t a “tame” read!
It is chock-full of scoundrels, liars, idol worshipers, cheats, adulterers, murderers – in short, it’s full of REAL people!
Today’s “Bible Pick ‘Ems” comes from the book of 2 Kings.
WOW! Talk about kingdom intrigue!
The book of 2 Kings reads like a captivating novel, as king upon king, one after the other, enters and leaves the scene. Some good, some evil – all interesting.
At first I wasn’t sure how I was going to grab a “meaningful” verse out of what I was reading. But then it hit me. Listen to these verses from 2 Kings 10:10:
[King Jehu speaking] “You can be sure that the message of the LORD that was spoken concerning Ahab’s family will not fail. The LORD declared through his servant Elijah that this would happen.”
God’s prophecy CAME TRUE!
This verse, written about events that took place SO VERY LONG AGO, has a message for us TODAY!
God’s Word endures forever!
His Word and His promises can be trusted!
All that He says will happen!
He is faithful. He never changes. And all things will work out, just as He declared, just as He planned, just as He promised!
The message of the Lord WILL NOT FAIL!
“Everything you have heard and seen is trustworthy and true…Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me…I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” (Revelation 22:6, 12-13)
“When in doubt, search God out!”
