    Our LORD is very steadfast in His character and doings that in every thing He does, Life is certain! Only for a little season debt reigned in the son of the prophets's family; only for a little while did the food in the pot remain bitter; only for a few hours did the Shunamite's son remain dead. The moment the power of God becomes active via faith in us as was seen in Elijah's, everything bows!
