A Fair Fight?

When the king of Israel saw them, he asked Elisha, “Shall I kill them, my father? Shall I kill them?”

“Do not kill them,” he answered. “Would you kill men you have captured with your own sword or bow? Set food and water before them so that they may eat and drink and then go back to their master.” So he prepared a great feast for them, and after they had finished eating and drinking, he sent them away, and they returned to their master. So the bands from Aram stopped raiding Israel’s territory. 2 Kings 6:21-23

When the Lord is on your side, it’s never a fair fight. As we talked about already, the men of Aram were blinded, captured, and led into Samaria. It wasn’t fair at all. But in a war, what’s fair?

The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4

You see, we, too are in a war. We can’t see the enemy but he’s there. And fortunately for us, the Lord is on our side. The problem I see is that we forget that God is on our side. We try to fight alone. We’re not meant to go it alone. We’re meant to cry out to Him in our hour of need, and in our hour of plenty.
