In studying Elisha (which, by the way, is a fantastically interesting study) and reading where he parted the Jordan, it got me thinking about Moses parting the Red Sea; which got me thinking about unbelievers. I have heard scientists and historians try to explain it away saying it was a more shallow body of water. But then a child responded to this by exclaiming what a miracle it was that all those soldiers drowned in such a shallow body of water! hehe

But I say...if Houdini, David Copperfield, or the like had parted a mere bowl of water most of the world would gasp in amazement and still be talking and writing about it!

Why are some so afraid to give God His glory? That question is not asked prideful or in haughtiness. We need to seek an answer to this question because those nay sayers are God's creation, too, and He cares to see them saved.

Last year I prayed to hear God's voice more clearly and through devoted time in the Word God answered my prayer.

This year I have prayed for humility and I always pray for wisdom. So He has given me these two sections of scripture to hold on to this year.

James 1:5-8 NASB

5 But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8 being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. 

Isaiah 53:6-7 NASB

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth....
