    I had read this story before, and I wanted to read it again, I couldn't find it, So I asked the Author of this book to show me where the story was, and he did !! But the meat of the story to me is -- No matter what the situation is-- you seek God the FATHER ABOUT IT FIRST !!

    We should trust in God at all time because he never disappoints, Elijah had faith in Him and He didn't disappoint Elijah

    Comment*you cannot call on whom you do not know and equally seek whom you cannot find. it is an error to thing otherwise, king ahaziah knew no God but gods.

    For me, 2 Kings 1 shows me how faith in God is needed in our life. Elijah's faith in God was so strong he did nto even fear these men who came to get him. He just told them the God he serve would rain fire on them. I strive daily to get this type of faith. The good news is we all have all our life to work this type of faith into our lives
