A Successful Failure: Lessons from the Life of Jehu

In 2 Kings we read lessons from the life of Jehu; how he killed Ahab and Jezebel. It would seem that he was a great warrior, but he was a successful failure. #Biblestudy #2Kings #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Today’s story is not your average Sunday School story.  Since the Bible is nearly 2,000 pages long, there are many stories that rarely get read or taught in church.  The battles of Jehu are hard to understand without understanding the historical background of 2 Kings but tucked inside this story are a few life lessons for us.

So, let’s take a look together at 2 Kings chapters 9 – 10 and the rise and fall of King Jehu.

In those days, there were very few good kings.  In 1 Kings 16:30, it says of the former King, named Ahab, that he had done more evil in the sight of the Lord than all those before him.  He was a murderer and an idolater and so we see in 2 Kings 9 that God used one of Elisha’s prophets to anoint Jehu as the next King of Israel and he is given an assignment — “strike down the house of Ahab”.

And the young man poured the oil on his head, saying to him, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, I anoint you king over the people of...

Here are the links to last week’s posts on the blog, in case you missed any of them:

Intro and Resources for 2 Kings 1-5

Faith, Work and Getting Out of Debt – based on our reading in 2 Kings 4 and Elisha and the Widow’s Oil.

If you are looking for guidance in the color coding and daily insight into the reading – please visit me on Instagram and visit the hashtag #WomenLivingWell – there are lots of women posting their pictures of their color coded Bibles and their reflections on our reading. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to do this and not all of our Bibles will look alike.

Here’s what mine looks like:

Faith, Work and Getting Out of Debt – God Cares About Your Financial Needs

If you're walking through a difficult financial season, the book of 2 Kings reminds us that God cares about your financial needs. #Biblestudy #2Kings #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Have you made financial goals for the new year?

Perhaps last year was a hard year for you financially. Maybe a medical emergency, a job loss or a slow year in your line of work, has caused set backs for you.

In today’s video we are going to take a closer look at 2 Kings 4:1-7 and the story of Elisha and the widow’s oil.  We are going to see how her faith, mixed with hard work, got her out of debt.

God cares about your financial needs but he doesn’t want us to just sit and pray and wait for a miracle. There is something we can do about it!  So join me on this video as we talk about faith, work and getting out of debt.

In the video above, I mentioned that I rarely talk about finances. I prefer to leave it up to the experts, so let me share some experts with you that I recommend.

I am so excited to begin the Book of 2 Kings with you!

Now, let’s get started with an overview of 2 Kings.


You do not have to have studied 1 Kings in order to study 2 Kings with us.

While 2 Kings is a continuation of 1 Kings – the book stands alone and is understandable on it’s own. But for those who missed the 1 Kings study or for those who need their memory refreshed about 1 Kings – here’s what 1 Kings was all about.

In 1 Kings, we saw the rise and fall of both good and bad kings, starting with David.  One of the well-known stories from 1 Kings is when God offers Solomon anything he desires, and he asks for wisdom.  Solomon is given the gift of wisdom and he builds a magnificent temple for the Lord.  Following this great project, Solomon falls into sin and does not end as well as he started.
