“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so 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. 2 Kings 6:17
This is the passage we read about as kids. The Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire. It’s a beautiful reminder to us all that there’s a spiritual battle going on around us that we cannot see or hear. We’re not in this fight alone, even though the world may be crashing down all around us.
Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died-more than that, who was raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Romans 8:33-34
Certainly there’s an unseen battle going on around us. Whether it’s the horses and chariots that Elisha’s servant saw or Christ Jesus going to the Father on our behalf, we are not alone.
