2 Kings 6: 8–20
Elisha’s servant was afraid. With his physical eyes, the task appeared impossible. They were surrounded. They were outnumbered. “Alas, my master what shall we do?” (v 15). In verse 16 Elisha answered, “ Fear not. For those that are with us are more than those with them.” Then in verse 17 Elisha prayed, “Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see”.
Oh, God – help me remember when I feel hedged in, and pressed on by the circumstances in my life that what I have is MORE than the circumstances. Open my eyes that I may see “that they that are with me are more than they that are with them”. Open my eyes to see “the mountain full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding me.” Smote the eyes of my enemies with blindness…and open mine.
