2 Kings 6:16 (KJV)
“And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them”
Have you ever found yourself in situations where there were overwhelming opposition and obstacles stacked up against you that you saw no way out? Have you ever faced circumstances so against you that you felt all hope was lost and that deliverance was impossible? Well, you are not the first.
In the Bible, we find a number of people who found themselves in same circumstances and felt the same way you did/do. Elisha’s servant was one of such persons. In the text above, they had just been compassed about by horses, chariots and a great host of the Syrian army. It seemed like their numbers were up; like they should start saying their last prayers. His heart had melted, till he cried, “Alas, my master! how shall we do?”.
Elisha answered that there be more with us than with them, therefore do not fear. There is something these saints of old knew and understood, we must have that same understanding if we must walk in the victories that they walked in
Now hear Hebrews 12:22 “But ye are come to mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels”
We have an innumerable company of angels at work for us. They are sent to minister for us (Heb 1:14), He gives his angels charge over us, to keep us in all our ways (Psalms 91:10-12). It is why you find that in 2nd Kings 6:17 when the eyes of Elisha’s servant was opened he saw angels as chariots of fire round about them, and their deliverance was wrought by the ministry of angels.
Have this understanding, fear not! Regardless of circumstances, we have the advantage, always.
