2 Kings: Collision Course with Captivity
Michael continues his survey of the Bible with the book of Second Kings. In this book we see the reign of 19 more kings in the Divided Kingdom, the transfer of leadership between Elijah and Elisha, and are introduced to a new prophet: Isaiah. As we read about the faith of the prophets and failures of many of these kings, we’re prompted to ask: where do we turn in times of trouble? Do we seek answers from our own resources, worldview, network, friends?
May we learn to first inquire of the Lord when we find ourselves in need of guidance.
