Heaven Is Fighting For You - 2 Kings 6:17-18

Day 13, January 15, 2016

2 Kings 6

The king of Syria declares war against the people of Israel. They’re in the war room planning. They change their course, and go after Elisha because every time they tried to attack Israel, Elisha hears about it.. let’s the King of Israel know, and Israel wins.  The King of Syria says “who istelling our secrets?”  Elisha is identified so this King is ready to take out Elisha.

The King of Syria and his army surrounds Elisha and his servant. The servant sees the multitude and sees no hope.. no light at the end of the tunnel.

Elisha’s response is Don’t be afraid.

Verse 16
16 “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” 

21Days of prayer helps us to finish strong.

No matter what you and I have going on.. there are more fighting for us than against us. We have more resources for us than against us. Heaven is fighting for you and me today. There is hope. Your marriage can survivie. You can get out of debt.  There’s hope. Heaven is fighting for you.

Sometimes you just need to see it. 

Verse 17
17 Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” The Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.

Let’s pray today that things are not as bad as you think, if you’ll let the Lord open your eyes. Your problems are not bigger than our God.

Let’s pray today that we will see things as God sees them. There are more on heaven’s side than the enemy. We have the resources for victory today. So Lord, Open our eyes today.  In Jesus name!
