I don’t know about you but sometimes I look at the situations in my life and I just get a little overwhelmed. Sometimes life just gives us a lot to deal with. And honestly, sometimes I just don’t feel up to the task. I just don’t want to go to battle.
This morning I was so encouraged by my Bible reading that I just had to take a quick minute to share it with you.
2 Kings 6:16-17
“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
WOW! I often need my eyes opened. I need a reminder to take my eyes off of my circumstances and look around at all of those who God has called to go to battle with me. He is by my side with the hosts of heaven, but He’s also given me friends and family who will go to battle for me. Some of those people stand in the gap in prayer. Some come along side me to encourage. And always, He is there strengthening me to stand strong in the midst of every trial.
Love and blessings,
