April 25 "Arrow of Victory" 2 Kings 12-14
“Open the east window,” he said, and he opened it. “Shoot!” Elisha said, and he shot. “The Lord’s arrow of victory, the arrow of victory over Aram!” Elisha declared." 2 Kings 13:17.
But there are so many sad tales in 2 Kings. So many evil kings. Like Jehoram, who yielded to the force of evil within him. And then Manasseh, one of the most evil and longest-reigning kings of Judah. God's love outlasted his hate. Manasseh turned back to God. Evil in our hearts to this day cannot remain "unchecked, unadmitted, unforgiven, and unchanged." Oh Judah! How lonely sits that city!
