…“O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see”…
2 Kings 6:17 ESV
Another thing I pray for is “knowing like Elisha.” We don’t know that he could see the chariots of fire, but he knew they were there. It’s a faith gift from God. There’s a place where God can show you something and you can have complete confidence in what God will do.
…If they spare our lives we shall live, and if they kill us we shall but die.”
2 Kings 7:4
The men used logic to decide they shouldn’t worry about going to the enemy camp. We can use logic to look at any situation and see how there is no possible reason to worry about it because, logically, if God knows what’s going on and is loving and good and able and sovereign, there’s no room for not trusting.
…concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. …where we supposed there was a place of prayer…
Acts 16:10, 13
Of all the stories today, Paul was operating in the least amount of “knowing.” He’s just doing his best to follow what he knows, trusting God to stop and redirect him as needed.
The discerning sets his face toward wisdom…
We can choose to go after God’s wisdom, His knowing. He gives wisdom to those who ask.
