Pastor Rudy Bropleh uses 2 Kings 13:22-23 to emphasize three key points that tells from the grace of God flows the mercy of God. Point 1 - God's grace is a marvelous grace. God will come right into the middle of our situation and say enough is enough and redeem me. Point 2 - God's grace is a magnificent grace. God's grace is always available to us and enables our little vision to become great. Our ability to live a significant life is dependent upon God's grace. Point 3 - God's grace is a mighty grace. God's grace continues to rescue us when it isn't deserved

The people of Israel demand a king to be like the nations around them. They want a king to fight for them. They wanted a king for all the wrong reasons - to be like the other nations - but Israel was to be set apart for God and different from other nations. How often do churches today want to be like the world to be more acceptable to the world and "relevant." Samuel warns them against their desire. They do not listen. God allows them to go their own way. Yet, His will is still to come about as He knew there would be kings over Israel (Deuteronomy 7 describes what the King was to do and not do).
Biblical references include 1 Corinthians 2:12-16; Proverbs 29:18; and 2 Kings 6:8-17 in the delivery of the message, "Do You See What I See?

When God shows you something, he wants to tell you something --providing new knowlege. What does God want to do in your life? You are a work in progress and He is still working on You. Key Points: God doesn't want you to put LIMITATIONS on your IMAGINATION --Praise brings power!; and There are no limitations to DIVINE DISCRETION. Referencing Ecclesiastes 3:1 - There is a time for everything and a season for every activity. Show FAITH; TRUST God!
