When you are surrounded by the enemy.

2 Kings 6:15-17

New King James Version (NKJV)

15 And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”

16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then theLord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

 When we are surrounded by the enemy it is terrifying and we often feel alone and out numbered. When that happens remember this passage in II Kings 6. I don’t know how Elisha knew that the chariots of fire were there but some how he did. How cool and reassuring it must have been for his servant when God opened his eyes and he too could see the host of angels surrounding the enemy. Elisha said ‘they that are with us are more than they that are with them’. God always has the enemy out numbered. So when you are confronted by those who are evil remember that God has them surrounded and He is watching out for you.

 1 John 4:4

New King James Version (NKJV)

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
