The servent could only see the army surrounding them. (2 kings 6) But Elisha was not afraid, he knew that those with them were more than those with the enemy. So he prayed his servants eyes would be opened. Are you living in fear of something today? Having you been wasting days of your life serving fear instead of faith?
For a time in my own life I felt the need to store up things, like extra laundry soap, shampoo, you catch my drift. Now hear my heart, I am not saying there is anything wrong with having a well stocked pantry. What I am saying is that at the time I found myself less and less reluctant to give things away. So I prayed about it and discovered my motive wasn’t to provide a well stocked inventory for my family my motivation had been fear.
The more I heard about the stock market or real estate, job cuts, the more fear I felt about not having enough. The more bills that came in the more outnumbered I felt. All I could think of is bad memories from my childhood. I felt like I had to take matters into my own control. Until I remembered that I was never going to be out numbered. Sure maybe in the natural things I can see but that is where faith comes in. God is not moved by my fear it is my faith that he has a watchful eye for.
He makes me brave. I know he can help you be brave too.
Maybe what you are going through seems like it will never end, or maybe it seems hopeless but I want to tell you today you are not outnumbered. You are not forgotten. God is still with you and his angel armies camp around the righteous. Keep praying and don’t lose faith.
May you be blessed and encouraged.
