    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
