There is a Prophet

**#ComeFollowMe nugget** 2 Kings 2–7 “𝚃𝚑𝚎𝚛𝚎 𝙸𝚜 𝚊 𝙿𝚛𝚘𝚙𝚑𝚎𝚝 𝚒𝚗 𝙸𝚜𝚛𝚊𝚎𝚕" A prophet’s main mission is to teach and testify of the Savior Jesus Christ.  Our record of the prophet Elisha, however, doesn’t include much of his teaching or testifying.  What the record does include is the miracles Elisha performed, including raising a child from the dead (see 2 Kings 4:18–37), feeding a multitude with a small quantity of food (see 2 Kings 4:42–44), and healing a leper (see 2 Kings 5:1–14).  So while we don’t have Elisha’s words bearing witness of Christ, we do have, throughout Elisha’s ministry, powerful manifestations of the Lord’s life-giving, nourishing, and healing power.  Such manifestations are more plentiful in our lives than we sometimes realize.  To see them, we need to seek the miracle Elisha sought when he prayed on behalf of his fearful young servant, “Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see” (2 Kings 6:17).
