2 Kings 6:17 KJV
And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord , I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
The king of Syria had sent his troops to capture Elisha because of the role the man of God played. He provided intel on Syria’s military movements, making their tactics useless each time.
In a situation like this, one in which Elisha found himself, it is very easy for one to panic. Note that we are not told that Elisha had prior warning about this ambush on his own life, unlike other times. He was caught off-guard.
But because of what Elisha ‘saw’ he was not perturbed. If only we can all see, we will not be disturbed in most of the situations we find ourselves in.
Upon seeing Thomas, the risen Christ said, “blessed are they who have not seen and yet believe.”
We may neither have the eyes of Elisha nor be privileged like his young servant to see what legion the Lord has deployed on our behalf, but one things we need to be assured of is that they are always there at our disposal. Ours is to command them!
Have a blessed day.
