1 Samuel 15:1-35; Isaiah 54:1-17; Romans 1:18-32

“Is it well with you? Is it well with your husband? Is it well with
the child?” And she answered, “It is well.”…The man of God
said, “Let her alone; for her soul is in deep distress.”
2 Kings 4:26-27,NKJV

When reading the above account of the Shunammite woman, we
might ask, was she putting on false pretenses or did her complete
confidence in Elisha’s God allow her to answer so positively?
When passing through intense, difficult circumstances, we too
may attempt to put on a brave front, when in reality our souls are
in deep distress. Only in complete surrender to, and confidence in
our God’s faithfulness, can we also exclaim, it is well! —E. V.

Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
“It is well, it is well with my soul!” —Horatio G. Spafford
