When you have the real thing, why look for counterfeits? Ahaziah was a King of Israel. He had prophets, the Temple and the Ark of the Covenant at his disposal. Why was it that when he found himself battling a physical infirmity, he turned to the false gods of another country?
God speaks to Elijah and tells him to remind the king that there is a God in Israel and He knows the future. When Ahaziah gets the Word from God, it is not pleasing at all to his ears. So, he desires to destroy the messenger. But, he does not succeed. God’s Word cannot return to Him without accomplishing what He sent it to do. Plus, God would not allow his messenger to be ashamed for trusting and speaking God’s word!
You have all the answers you need in Jesus. You do not need to consult palm readers, tarot card mystics, psychics or even horoscopes to get your answer. Jesus is your answer to every question. Will I be healed? Yes! Will I bounce back after my marriage failed? Yes! Will I ever own a house after the last one was foreclosed on? Yes! Will I ever see my dreams become a reality? Yes, in Jesus’ Name!
