Recently the Lord has been speaking to me from the story of Elisha and King Jehoash in 2 Kings 13:16. In the story, Elisha was sick and would soon die from the illness, but he had one more prophetic assignment or act to be a part of before leaving the earth. This was not just any act, but a very strategic, prophetic act that carries significance for us even today. In reading through the stories of the Bible, it becomes clear that God uses people who are willing to engage with him in seemingly "foolish" acts to accomplish His purposes and will. In this story we find a king and an old prophet shooting arrows out a window, but their faith, along with their obedience to perform the prophetic acts had the potential to shift things in the spiritual atmosphere over a nation.
