2 Kings 6 :15-16
And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! How shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than those who are with them.
The king of Syria was at war with Israel, and in a meeting with his advisers, he revealed to them his strategy against that country. But Elisha, a man of God, sent word to the king of Israel. Beware of passing through this place, the Syrians are descending there." Elisha did not inform the king once, but several times. Each time informed, the king of Israel sent people, to stand for observation, to the place mentioned to him by the man of God. This situation disturbed the king of Syria, he called his advisers, and said to them: Which one of you is for the king of Israel? One of his servants replied: No one! O king my lord, but Elisha, the prophet, who is in Israel, tells the king of Israel the words that you speak in your bedroom. The king informed where Elisha was. He sent horses, chariots and a great army at night to surround the city. Gehazi, servant of the man of God, got up early in the morning, went out and saw the Syrian soldiers surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And the servant said: Alas! my master! What will we do?
For the servant of Elisha, the situation is serious. All these soldiers, horses and chariots, there was nothing they could do. The Syrians will take them, there is no solution.
Elisha answered his servant in the following way: Fear not, those who are with us
are in greater numbers than those who are with them. Elisha believed that God was with him and God always has a solution. Jesus told us: That he is always with us every day, until the end of the world. Matthew 28:20.
The spiritual eyes of Elisha were opened, he saw how God protected him and asked him to open his servant's eyes so that he could see the heavenly army. God opened the eyes of his servant and he saw the mountains full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. The servant was afraid of this situation. In his natural eyes, he saw no solution. He already saw himself as a prisoner of Syrian soldiers. God had already given an answer to this question: What will we do?
Unfortunately, his natural eyes were limited to see the glory of God. Elisha completely placed his trust in God and his spiritual eyes were opened to contemplate the wonders of God. He asked the Lord to blind the Syrians. And the Lord answered the prayer of Elisha.
What's your fear? God has the solution. Develop a good relationship with Him through his son Jesus Christ through meditation of his word, prayer, fasting, worship and placing all your trust in him. Ephesians 1: 17,19. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power.
