The man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that you pass not such a place. Nothing is hidden from God. We are told that The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptation. Here we have an illustration of this. The Lord knew the plans of the king of Syria to entrap the king of Israel. He made known these plans to Elisha, and he in turn told the king of Israel of the ambush, that he might save himself from the peril. The Bible gives us many such warnings. In such and such paths, it tells us, it is not safe for us to go, for Satan walks there. There is a fable of a wonderful ring which a prince wore, that clasped his finger softly while he went in right ways, but stung him sharply whenever he was in danger of going in some wrong path. That is what conscience does. If only we heeded the warnings of our conscience we should never get into places of danger, save when duty called us there, and then we should have protection, for when God sends us He will take care of us.
