I’ve been there, been frustrated and in the midst of it, the Lord taught me something profound.

2Kings gives us a picture of Elisha and the Syrians. Elisha discerned the plot the Syrians had against the Israelites and he sent a message to warn the king of Israel of what awaited them. Continue reading “See What I See, 1of2, Evans Olang”
