I have a lot of favorite passages in the Bible, but some of the best I think are those that show God at work in unseen ways. Kind of like pulling back the curtain on Oz, but this is the real deal.
One story I especially love is in 2 Kings 6 when the Arameans have surrounded Elisha and his servant.
The servant sees only the enemy, but Elisha sees more. He sees God.
Elisha says “Don’t be afraid. Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then he prays that his servant’s eyes might be opened.
“The Lord opened his eyes and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
I love that! Voila! The servant was able to see the protecting power of a heavenly army who had been there, but hidden from his sight.
Sometimes we just need a little help to right-size our view of God.
What are you seeing most clearly today? Your fears or who’s fighting for you?
I hope this video is a fun reminder things aren’t always what they seem.
