Today’s Scripture: 2 Kings 4:26, ESV – “…say to her, ‘Is all well with you? Is all well with your husband? Is all well with the child?'” And she answered, “All is well.”
Today’s Word: Second Kings 4 records the story of a mother whose little boy suddenly died in her arms. Yet even when it looked unbearable, she knew that unexpected trouble wasn’t a surprise to God. She immediately set out to get her friend the prophet, Elisha. Twice she was asked if her child was as well, and she answered, “All is well.” She knew that God could make a way where she didn’t see away. Elisha prayed for the little boy, and he miraculously came back to life.
We all face unexpected challenges–the loss of a loved one, a personal failure, a layoff, a sickness. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. But rather than complain and go around in self-pity, go deeper and instead have a report of faith, “All is well. God’s in control.” Then because you are rooted in the Highest God, you’ll feel the peace that passes understanding and have the strength to endure what should have taken you out.
The scripture says, “God’s calling on our life is irrevocable.” That means God doesn’t change His mind. He doesn’t promise you and then waits to see what you’re going to do. He already knew every mistake you would make. He knew every person that would do you wrong, every bad break. He took that all into account when He called you.
Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that You are the Highest God who sees every unexpected and uncertain circumstance I will ever face. I declare that my peace and strength are in You, and my roots are firmly set in You. All is well today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
