A Refresher in Our Study of Elisha
We have been digging deep in our study of Elisha. I hope you have been as thrilled at the richness of God’s Word as I have, and I also hope you have found insights and applications for your life. We have watched as God worked stunning miracles and showed great compassion for people through Elisha. He can do the same for us!
Before we take in the last few events of Elisha’s life, let’s take some time to review or catch up.

If you want unique questions from any of those found in the previous devotions, this spot is for you! Enjoy your time with the Lord! Reflect on these questions or journal your thoughts. Listen for what God says to you during your quiet time with Him.
Psalm 91 begins:
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
1. What do you need to take refuge from today, resting in God’s care?
2. How have you seen God’s faithfulness expressed to you recently or earlier in your life? How does this help you trust Him for what you are facing today?
3. Write a prayer or psalm of thanksgiving to Jesus, thanking Him for all He has done in your life.
