Living in Resurrection Life — Lessons from the Life of Elisha — Part III (01-30-22)



By: Louie Giglio; Christopher D Tomlin

You are my supply,
My breath of life,
Still more awesome than I know;
You are my Reward,
Worth living for,
Still more awesome than I know.

All of You is more than enough for
All of me, for every thirst and
Every need, You satisfy me
With Your love and all I have in You
Is more than enough.

You’re my Sacrifice
Of greatest price,
Still more awesome than I know;
You’re my coming King,
You are everything,
Still more awesome than I know.

More than all I want,
More than all I need,
You are more than enough for me;
More than all I know,
More than all I can see,
You are more than enough…

Fall Afresh

By: Jeremy Riddle

Awaken my soul, come awake
To hunger, to seek, to thirst;
Awaken first love, come awake
And do as you did at first.

Spirit of the Living God,
Come, fall afresh on me,
Come, wake me from my sleep;
Blow through the caverns of my soul,
Pour in me to overflow.

Awaken my soul, come awake
To worship with all your strength.

Show Your shining face,
Let Your Spirit come invade.

Jesus Paid It All

Words: Elvina M. Hall
Music: John T. Grape

I hear the Savior say,
“Thy strength indeed is small,
Child of weakness watch and pray,
Find in Me Thine all in all.”

Jesus paid it all,
All to Him I owe;
Sin had left a crimson stain,
He washed it white as snow.

Lord now indeed I find
Thy power, and Thine alone,
Can change the leper’s spots
And melt the heart of stone.

For nothing good have I
Whereby Thy grace to claim;
I’ll wash my garments white
In the blood of Calv’ry’s Lamb.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
My lips shall still repeat.

Oh, praise the One who paid my debt
And raised this life up from the dead!

Have Thine Own Way

Words: Adelaide Addison Pollard
Music: George Coles Stebbins

Have Thine own way, Lord,
Have Thine own way.
Thou art the Potter,
I am the clay.
Mould me and make me
After Thy will,
While I am waiting,
Yielded and still.

Have Thine own way, Lord,
Have Thine own way.
Search me and try me
Master, today.
Whiter than snow, Lord
Wash me just now,
While in Thy presence,
Humbly I bow.

Have Thine own way, Lord,
Have Thine own way.
Wounded and weary
Help me, I pray.
Power, all power,
Surely is Thine;
Touch me and heal me,
Savior divine.

Have Thine own way, Lord,
Have Thine own way.
Hold o’er my being
Absolute sway.
Fill with Thy Spirit
‘Til all shall see
Christ only, always,
Living in me.

2 Kings 4:8-37

Elisha and the Shunammite Woman

One day Elisha went on to Shunem, where a wealthy woman lived, who urged him to eat some food. So whenever he passed that way, he would turn in there to eat food. And she said to her husband, “Behold now, I know that this is a holy man of God who is continually passing our way. 10 Let us make a small room on the roof with walls and put there for him a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp, so that whenever he comes to us, he can go in there.”

11 One day he came there, and he turned into the chamber and rested there. 12 And he said to Gehazi his servant, “Call this Shunammite.” When he had called her, she stood before him. 13 And he said to him, “Say now to her, ‘See, you have taken all this trouble for us; what is to be done for you? Would you have a word spoken on your behalf to the king or to the commander of the army?’ ” She answered, “I dwell among my own people.” 14 And he said, “What then is to be done for her?” Gehazi answered, “Well, she has no son, and her husband is old.” 15 He said, “Call her.” And when he had called her, she stood in the doorway. 16 And he said, “At this season, about this time next year, you shall embrace a son.” And she said, “No, my lord, O man of God; do not lie to your servant.” 17 But the woman conceived, and she bore a son about that time the following spring, as Elisha had said to her.

Elisha Raises the Shunammite’s Son

18 When the child had grown, he went out one day to his father among the reapers. 19 And he said to his father, “Oh, my head, my head!” The father said to his servant, “Carry him to his mother.” 20 And when he had lifted him and brought him to his mother, the child sat on her lap till noon, and then he died. 21 And she went up and laid him on the bed of the man of God and shut the door behind him and went out. 22 Then she called to her husband and said, “Send me one of the servants and one of the donkeys, that I may quickly go to the man of God and come back again.” 23 And he said, “Why will you go to him today? It is neither new moon nor Sabbath.” She said, “All is well.” 24 Then she saddled the donkey, and she said to her servant, “Urge the animal on; do not slacken the pace for me unless I tell you.” 25 So she set out and came to the man of God at Mount Carmel.

When the man of God saw her coming, he said to Gehazi his servant, “Look, there is the Shunammite. 26 Run at once to meet her and say to her, ‘Is all well with you? Is all well with your husband? Is all well with the child?’ ” And she answered, “All is well.” 27 And when she came to the mountain to the man of God, she caught hold of his feet. And Gehazi came to push her away. But the man of God said, “Leave her alone, for she is in bitter distress, and the Lord has hidden it from me and has not told me.” 28 Then she said, “Did I ask my lord for a son? Did I not say, ‘Do not deceive me?’ ” 29 He said to Gehazi, “Tie up your garment and take my staff in your hand and go. If you meet anyone, do not greet him, and if anyone greets you, do not reply. And lay my staff on the face of the child.” 30 Then the mother of the child said, “As the Lord lives and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So he arose and followed her. 31 Gehazi went on ahead and laid the staff on the face of the child, but there was no sound or sign of life. Therefore he returned to meet him and told him, “The child has not awakened.”

32 When Elisha came into the house, he saw the child lying dead on his bed. 33 So he went in and shut the door behind the two of them and prayed to the Lord. 34 Then he went up and lay on the child, putting his mouth on his mouth, his eyes on his eyes, and his hands on his hands. And as he stretched himself upon him, the flesh of the child became warm. 35 Then he got up again and walked once back and forth in the house, and went up and stretched himself upon him. The child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes. 36 Then he summoned Gehazi and said, “Call this Shunammite.” So he called her. And when she came to him, he said, “Pick up your son.” 37 She came and fell at his feet, bowing to the ground. Then she picked up her son and went out.
