Monday January 20, 2020 “Recognize Life”

2 Kings 4:20-21 When he had taken him and brought him to his mother, he sat on her knees till noon, and then died. 21 And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, shut the door upon him, and went out.

The Shunammite Woman did what she knew to do, taking her son’s dead body and laid it on the prophet’s bed. It seems she could sense the spirit of God in Elisha and she also seems to understand the power that would later be revealed in Elisha’s death. You see, when the Prophet died, his body was hurriedly thrown into an open grave because of approaching enemy soldiers. A soldier’s corpse was thrown into the grave. When that body touched Elisha’s, the dead soldier was raised back to life.
Let us pray today that the anointing of God will be recognized and that America’s leaders will recognize where God’s power to bring life to bad situations comes from – God Himself and bring those people and organizations to bring new life where death has reigned.
