Power

Are you up against a formidable enemy that is terrifying your life?  There’s an amazing story in 2 Kings 6.  If we could see the power that surrounds us in the invisible world, we would not be afraid of the onslaught of disastrous circumstances that seem to be rising against us.  When the servant of Elisha woke up one day to see the enemy had surrounded their city for the specific reason of killing them, he was terrified.  Your situation may terrify you.  It may appear you are outnumbered.  There is no visible way of escape and it looks hopeless.  The man of God, Elisha, had weathered many storms of life.  He was not a novice in the things of the supernatural.  He knew the power of God.  He had already seen the incredible manifestation of the vengeance of God on behalf of His children…over and over again.  There is no indication that Elisha saw with his natural eyes what he next gifted his servant with.  Elisha said, “Fear not, for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” The servant could not comprehend what Elisha was talking about.  Clearly they were about to be consumed by the enemy…clearly with all the facts … as they appeared; this was going to end badly.   I love this in verse 17, “And Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.’” May God open our eyes to see that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities and rulers of darkness.  If our fight is not against what we actually see with our eyes, then our worry, anxiety and stress over the visible is a complete waste of time.  God is fighting for you in a realm you cannot see, except your eyes of faith are opened. The verse continues, “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.”  God is not mocked; He is not weak; He is not powerless and He will not let our justice be miscarried.  He will not leave us defenseless when attacked by evil.  With the precision of a laser-guided weapon, God will obliterate the assault of our adversary.  Do not look at what your eyes can see.  This is not a battle of circumstance.  Fight with prayer that your eyes would be opened to see the most powerful force in the universe, steadily, immovably, unstoppably at work on your behalf.
