There is no god who can compare with the Lord.

2 Kings 16:1-17:41; Acts 26:24-27:12; Psalm 81:8-16 “They followed worthless idols and themselves became worthless” (2 Kings 17:15). There is no god who can compare with the Lord (Psalm 81:9-10). He alone is worthy of praise. He alone gives value to our lives by bringing fulfilment to them: “Open wide your mouth and I will …

“Do not be afraid …”

‘Do not be afraid because of the words you have heard’(2 Kings 19:6). God’s Word tells us that “perfect love drives out fear” (1 John 4:18). It’s His perfect love which gives us the victory over those who oppose Him.

What are we to do when we feel the conflict between good and evil is tearing us apart?

2 Kings 15:23-16:20 Within every one of us, there is conflict. It is the conflict between good and evil (2 Kings 15:34,24,28; 2 Kings 16:2). Paul experienced this conflict: ‘I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. I don’t do the good I want to do. Instead, I do the evil that …

If You Don’t Have Salvation, You Have Nothing!

2 Kings 17:1-41 ‘The people of Israel had sinned against the Lord their God, who had brought them up out of the land of Egypt’(7).

Praying Through God’s Word: 2 Kings

2 Kings 1:1-2:13Lord, there is always something more to be done for You. Help us never to say, “I’ll leave it to someone else” or “I’ll leave it until tomorrow.” The things that are left to someone else or left until tomorrow often end up becoming the things that never get done. Help us, Lord, …

"Love The Lord Your God … Love Your Neighbour."

2 Kings 6:1-23Elisha was ‘the man of God’(6,9,15). This was the important thing about him. More than anything else, he was ‘the man of God’. We find the same phrase in 1 Timothy 6:11 - ‘But as for you, man of God,… aim at righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness’. We are to be people …
