And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, LORD, so that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. 2 Kings 6:17
The king of Aramea was trying to attack the Israelites. Every time he made a plan, God revealed that plan to Elisha, who then revealed it to the Israelites. The king of Aramea then sent an army out to kill Elisha. Elisha’s servant saw the army coming and was scared because there were so many. He told his servant not to be afraid because there were more with him then with the enemy and asked God to open his eyes. Once his eyes were open, he could see a large host of chariots of fire all around them.
It is easy for a person to think that there is more of the enemy than of friendly people. This becomes especially true when you look at enemies of Christians. Very few, if any, nations, as a whole, are Christian and serve God. All around sin is promoted openly and freely as the best way to live.
Often, many Christians feel like they are the only believers in their workplace. They feel like they are all alone against the devil and those with him.
While it is very true that there is a very large army out there against every follower of Jesus, there are more with the believer. God has legions of angels there by the side of every believer.
As a believer, you also have God and all of His angels on your side. There are many physical enemies and physical friends, but the majority are those not seen, the spiritual enemy and spiritual friends.
The only way you can see your help is with spiritual eyes. God has to open your spiritual eyes to see who is with you. God is with you, along with all the angels of heaven.
When things are looking bad, and the enemy looks like he is going to beat you down and win, open your eyes to who God is and what He can do. God has more angels than there are people on this earth, here to help when needed. God is also more powerful than anyone on or off this earth. He can help you in all of your needs. Trust Him today.
I pray today that God will open your eyes to see His hand in your life; that God will remove your fear of the enemy; that you will trust God in your situations in life; and that God will do miracles in your life.
