Scripture of the Day - August 11, 2012

2 Kings 7:16  And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD. 17  And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trode upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.

Meanwhile there were some lepers who were deciding whether to go into the city or not. It seemed to be no matter what they did they were going to die so they decided to go to the Syrians and take a chance on some kindness. What a surprise they got when they arrived at the camp! Not a soul in sight! God had frightened the Syrians off! They left everything and fled for their lives and the lepers had a field day! Food, gold, silver, clothes, you name it they had left it all! Now the lepers started feeling a little guilty over all the starving people in Samaria so they went and told the King what they had discovered. The King put his trusted aid, the one who doubted God, in charge and he was trampled by the mob of people who stormed out of the city gate to fill their empty bellies. 
Folks it's a very foolish thing to doubt God. It's a very foolish thing to think that what God has declared done will not happen just because you don't understand how it could be so. You don't know what God will do and you can't come close to comprehending His ways...but you can trust Him and know that He has you in the palm of His hand.
