Today's reading: 2 Kings 3:1-27
Upon taking the throne after Ahab's death, Jehoram is immediately thrust into conflict with the king of Moab. Like his father, Jehoram respects Jehoshaphat and reaches out to him for help in fighting against Moab. Jehoshaphat agrees, and he, Jehoram and the king of Edom begin the long trek to engage the king of Moab in battle. The journey is a hard one across dry and desolate land, and at the end of seven days, the three kings and their troops find themselves exhausted and in a bad situation. At this point, they finally seek God's input and direction through Elisha, and God responds in a mighty way. It never ceases to amaze me the incredibly creative and unique ways that God chooses to utilize as He provides for us and moves on our behalf.
