THE WORD FOR TODAY Thursday 27.09.2018
Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith
the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine
flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a
shekel, in the gate of Samaria. Then a lord on whose hand
the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold,
if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing
be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes,
but shalt not eat thereof. And there were four leprous men
at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another,
Why sit we here until we die? If we say, We will enter into
the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die
there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore
come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they
save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall
but die. And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the
camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost
part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
For the LORD had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise
of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great
host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel
hath hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings
of the Egyptians, to come upon us. Wherefore they arose and
fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses,
and their asses, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
2 Kin. 7:1-7
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or,
What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your
heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
