I enjoyed reading our OT passage today and the many miracles Elisha performed. I was amazed at the faith of the Shunammite woman, as well as Naaman's servant - what a gracious heart this young girl had to share this good news and hope with the very one who enslaved her!
2 Kings 6:16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So the Lord 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.
There is a supernatural world right around us that we cannot see, but it doesn't make it any less real! Elisha and his servant had the incredible opportunity to see but a glimpse of God's angel army. How amazing that must have been! How invincible that must have made them feel!
That same army surrounds us today. Faith is being certain of what we do not see - we cannot see God's army, but it is there, fighting on behalf of God and the saints. Do we live as though we believe this to be true?
