When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. "Oh, my Lord , what shall we do?" the servant asked. "Don't be afraid," the prophet answered. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them. And Elisha prayed, "O Lord, open his eyes so 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 6:16-17
Today I prayed and asked God to open my eyes so that I can see. Just like Elisha's servant my vision is usually shortsighted. I can see the 'army' with 'horses' and 'chariots.' I don't see beyond them to see hills full of horses and chariots of fire. You can't compare chariots with chariots of fire and guess what, those chariots of fire are all on my side. They're all on the home team!
It is such a refreshing thought, 'if God be for me, who can be against me?' It is reassuring to know that when all hell is breaking loose in different areas in my life, there are more for me than against me. David understood this about God when he said
"He ransoms me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though MANY oppose me."
God is bigger than any situation I may face. God is on my side and no matter what comes against me, I am already in the majority. It doesn't matter how hard the storm rages, how hard the boat is rocking, what is of utmost importance is that Jesus, the One who stills all storms is here in this boat.
Lord, open my eyes that I may see.
