Ephesians 1:18 Paul says, “I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the wonderful future He has promised to those He called.”
In 2 Kings there’s the story of Elisha and his servant. They were in Dothan and an entire army of Armenians came to kill Elisha. The servant became frightened saying, “They’re going to kill us!” and Elisha said, “God, open his eyes!”
The Bible says God opened the servants eyes and he saw angels in chariots of fire surrounding them, protecting them, and they were safe. You lose your fear when you see with the eyes of faith!
Eventually, everyone will come to their Dothan. You either take courage with spiritual eyes the Lord gives you, or you spend your time in fear.
There are many, many demonic forces at work in our world today. You can see it in the fear and hate stirred up in our own country. There are things going on you would never have imagined your friends, your neighbors, your family doing or saying. Demonic forces at work. Open your eyes in faith that God has a better way.
I John 4:4 “Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” Open your eyes and see the angels in chariots of fire waiting to go to battle for you.
