This passage was one of our references in this morning’s Men’s Bible study. Such encouragement in this.
When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. – 2 Kings 6:15-17
By faith in Christ, we are children of God and He is with us and for us, always. There’s a lot more at work, on our side than we can see with our limited, physical eyes.
Sadly, some of us went to bed last night fretting and woke up this morning worrying, milling around in our head a thousand ways things are going to go wrong, we are going to fail, and all is going to end in tragedy. That thinking is not for you. If God is for us who can be against us? No one and nothing. (See Romans 8:31-39)
Open our eyes, Lord, that we may see. Amen.
