Tuesday Eye Opener

 
2 Kings 6:15-17    When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the young man cried to Elisha. 16 “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” 17 Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” The Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.
Just like in this story of Elisha and his servant, we often need God to open our eyes so that we can see that if God is for us He is more than a world against us.
 And what about those folk in our sphere of influence who may be having a hard time holding on? They’re serving the Lord and you’ve been encouraging them as best you can. They may be struggling with fear or doubt or sickness or hurt or frustration or depression. You’ve talked and talked and cried and talked with them with no real results. Why not pray Elisha’s prayer and believe God for the change. Say, “Lord open his/her eyes and let them see”. Then go on about your day rejoicing because this is the day that the Lord has made, Amen.
