And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. – 2 Kings 6:16-17
Elisha helped the king of Israel to escape attack planned by the king of Aram on several occasions. The scripture says time and time again Elisha warned the king and was always ready against the king of Aram. When the king of Aram suspected he may have a spy or traitor in his ranks he asked how the king of Israel could be ready for his attacks. He found out about Elisha prophesying to the king of Israel. He sent his troops to a place called Dothan to capture Elisha.
Elisha’s servant woke up one morning and saw they had been surrounded by an army with horses and chariots. The servant was afraid and asked Elisha what they were going to do about the situation. The servant thought they were outnumbered but Elisha saw different. So he calmed his servant and prayed. He said; “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” The Lord did what Elisha asked and his servant could see there was help filling up the hills with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha!
Do you know someone who hasn’t developed a strong relationship with the Lord and they are frightened by the events in the news, in their community and in their personal lives. Do like Elisha did and pray that the Lord will open their eyes so they can see the powerful help the Lord has for them. The Lord will open their eyes so they will be able to testify without a doubt that there is unseen power that will work on their behalf, and that power comes from God!
Psalm 121:1-2 says: I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
God Bless You. He loves you and I love you too.
