Wesley's Notes for 2 Kings 4:26


4:26 It is - So it was in some respects, because it was the will of a wise and good God, and therefore best for her. When God calls away our dearest relations by death, it becomes us to say, it is well both with us and them. It is well, for all is well that God doth: all is well with them that are gone, if they are gone to heaven. And all is well with us that stay behind, if by the affliction we are furthered in our way thither.

And it came to pass, when the man of God saw her afar off, that he said to Gehazi his servant, Behold, yonder is that Shunammite: 26 Run now, I pray thee, to meet her, and say unto her, Is it well with thee? is it well with thy husband? is it well with the child? And she answered, It is well. 27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught him by the feet: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God said, Let her alone for her soul is vexed within her: and the LORD hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.

    God gives hope,streight,power when there is none
  • Whilst we know of God being averse of doing anything without informing first his servants the prophets see Amos 3 7 ,here we observe God in HIS typical providential nature and divine foresight, 'hiding ' death in order to reveal resurrection power to man.
  • Lungile Maseko
    God is able to multiply the little, to give what you do 'nt have and to restore what is what is dead in our lives.
