Do Not Be Afraid!

Fear Not!!!

by Hazel Straub

What is really happening in our world? There is so much more to this life than what our physical eyes see. Ancient Israel had a prophet named Elisha, who would tell the Israelite king, where the enemy planned to attack. The attack would then be unsuccessful. (2 Kings 6: 8-23) The enemy king thought he had a traitor but learned it was the prophet of God, who was told by God, what the enemy king said, in his bedroom. So the enemy sent his troops to surround the city where Elisha was, as they hoped to capture him. Elisha’s servant was afraid when he saw the city surrounded, by an army with horses and chariots.

 “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. (2 Kings 6:16-17 NIV)

Elisha was not worried because of his close relationship with God and dependence on him. He prayed and the enemy soldiers became blind and were led into the city. They got their sight back and were sent home. Then the raids from that enemy ceased.

Know that God protects us with angel armies that are greater than those with the enemy. Press into God in greater intimacy, listening to his Word, praying and listening for his response. Believers do not need to fear because God is for us and turns the bad into good. God is the same today as yesterday and forever. He loves, protects, speaks, helps, and answers today.

Lord, open our eyes so we may see the truth! God is with you.

      • Hallelujah 🙌🏼 I wanted to thank you for being such a consistent vessel to impart the hope and love of our Father in this time💜 I felt the Lord lay something on my heart to share. It’s from Song of Songs 4, “Come with me through the archway of trust.[a]
        We will look[b] down
        from the crest of the glistening mounts
        and from the summit of our sublime sanctuary,
        from the lion’s den and the leopard’s lair.” It’s always an invitation from Him 💌I guess we’re running 🏃‍♀️😁😎
