Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” The Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire. 2 Kings 6:17 NLT
When a leader wants to attack another nation, there must be meetings with the leaders in the army. They will plan out strategy, time line, placement of troops, weapons and things of that sort. Success depends on keeping all these discussions private. Imagine after all that careful planning you execute your carefully planned attack; the enemy knew you were coming and made alternate plans. When that happens repeatedly you would think that there was a mole in your organization. And that is exactly what kept happening to king Aram.
One on his men knew about Elisha. He told the king that what he says in his bedroom Elisha would tell the king of Israel. Then King Aram decided he had enough military disappointment and he was going to deal with this Elisha; so he sent his army to capture one man. Early in the morning, Elisha’s servant saw the army surrounding them and became afraid. Elisha told him there were more with them than against them. Then Elisha prayed for God to show him those that were with them. Sometimes people make that same mistake. When they are surrounded, they look at the number of those against them; and think that they are outnumbered. You are not. It only appears that way. Ask God to open your eyes of faith so that you can trust Him to deliver you from the hands of the enemy.
Thought for Today: There are more with me than against me
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
