There are times when it feels like the enemy has us surrounded and is going to finish off the job.
Times when it seems like we are about to be overrun and left for dead.
But in those times there is hope for us.
I was encouraged as I read the Word a few days ago.
The king of Aram wanted to get rid of Elisha so he found out where he was and at night had the place
where he was surrounded. In the morning Elisha’s servant saw the army surrounding the city and he
freaked out. He went to Elisha to tells him the “bad news” but Elisha was as cool as a cucumber.
This is what Elisha said to him,
“Fear not, for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”
2 Kings 6:17
But Elisha went further. He prayed that his servant’s eyes be opened and after the prayer the servant saw the
hills filled with a great and mighty heavenly host outnumbering the enemy.
And that is what I want to encourage you with. Just like the servant saw, there are more with you than they
that are against you. It doesn’t matter how many enemies come against you, the fact and truth remains.
Let go of the fear and trust the Lord. He is fighting for you and is stronger and far greater than any enemy
that threatens you.
“Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise up against me,
in this will I be confident.”
God bless you friends and have a great weekend
