Read 2 Samuel 12:15 through 15:37
Published: Mar 26, 2017
As soon as the doors opened, the little boy jumped out, happy to be off the train. Before his family realized it, he had wandered out into the roadway. A vehicle crossing the intersection under a green light couldn’t stop in time. The driver stayed at the scene and offered what aid she could. Even though it was not her fault, she felt heartbroken and wept all the way home. Her car was hardly damaged, but that was not the case for little Timmy. She prayed for God to intervene, but the child died en route to the hospital.
He answered, “While the child was still alive, I fasted and wept. I thought, ‘Who knows? The Lord may be gracious to me and let the child live’” (2 Samuel 12:22).
Prayer is always the right action, regardless of circumstances. The answers, however, are up to God. Since He is the only one who can see the entire picture, His people must trust His wisdom in every situation and for every outcome.
Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to teach you what it means to pray without ceasing.Quicklook: 2 Samuel 12:16–23
