Recently, I had to ask myself, “Where are you placing your trust?” So, I figured I would pose the same question to You today.
Where are you placing YOUR trust? Are you confident that the Lord is with you, or do you turn to the right and left?
It’s really up to you. You can place your trust in Earthly vessels, and man-made inventions to save you in your time of need, or you can look to your creator, who is ALWAYS there for you – The One who is your Ever Present Help in times of trouble [Psalms 46:1].
15 When the servant of the man of God got up early and went out, he discovered an army with horses and chariots surrounding the city. So he asked Elisha, “Oh, my master, what are we to do? ”16 Elisha said, “Don’t be afraid, for those who are with us outnumber those who are with them.”17 Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” So the Lord opened the servant’s eyes. He looked and saw that the mountain was covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
Wow!! Elisha truly was anointed by the Holy Spirit! My favorite part of this incredible story, is the climax:
And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are MORE than they that be with them.
I’m sure his servant was thinking: “Yeah… O-kayyy….” then Elisha prayed for the servant to be able to see, and God opened his servant’s eyes to the supernatural realm all about him. Incredible!! I wonder if Elisha also saw the Heavenly hosts all around them, or if he just knew and/or sensed their presence was there?
Regardless, the Heavenly hosts WERE there, and so Elisha had no cause for alarm.
In other words, Elisha feared not! He knew the Lord would go before Him in the battle & he took complete authority over the whole situation- making the opposing army look foolish.
I guess the application here is to recognize whose side we’re on when facing ANY battle; and the One whose side I’m on, wins EVERY TIME! So, even if I appear to be gravely outnumbered in the natural, when I’m in God’s will – He MORE than tips the balance in my favor!!
So my prayer today is: Please help us Lord to Fear NOT, and to give us wisdom. Help us to realize our strength is in You, and that no matter how this life ends up for us, it will NOT be wasted!
You go before me and You conquer Every Time! Thank you Lord!
What battles are you facing right now? Do you have one that seems insurmountable? Or Is there a situation in your life where the odds seem to gravely outnumber you?
Well, the good news is that you can rest in the knowledge that if He is for you, Who can POSSIBLY be against you??
Be Blessed Friends!
