    God is working wonders through Elisha. He truly has double portion of his master's (Elijah) spirit.

    This is a powerful chapter that reveals God as our present help in times of need and ever present in our journey of life. David says the Lord sets a table for him before his enemies. This chapter illustrates victory for those who call upon the Lord against their enemies. Powerful chapter and how so perfect the bible goes in harmony from Genesis to Revelation.
