2 Kings 3:14-25

The morning glow

When King Ahab of Israel died, the king of Moab rebelled against Ahab’s son Joram, the new king.

King Joram was being threatened, so he together with the king of Judah and the king of Edom, went to see Elisha the prophet. Elisha told him; “Dig ditches all over the valley, and even though you will not see any rain, the valley will be filled with water for you and your animals to drink.”

When the Moabites heard that the three kings had come to fight against them, they got up early the next morning to prepare for battle. As the sun was rising, the pools of water looked red in the morning light and the Moabites thought it was blood. “The kings must have fought against each other,” they said. “Let’s go and raid their camp!” So they did; but the armies of the three kings defeated the Moabites and then destroyed their fields and towns.

How should I deal with nasty comments?

Are you being attacked with nasty comments that make you feel embarrassed, worthless and unwanted?

If God could use the glow of the morning sun to give the Israelites victory against attacks, He can shine His love into your situation too! If other kids are trying to make you miserable, the Lord can change your situation as He did for the Israelites. Pray until you feel the warmth of Jesus’ love shine into your life and bring healing to your hurting heart.

Jesus is the best friend anybody could wish for. He will never leave you, no matter what! Remember that Jesus made you special and that is what you are. So enjoy being the person you were made to be!
