2 Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
Sometimes it just feels as if the cares and obligations of life are almost too much. Like the old saying goes, “There is too much month at the end of the money.” At times it feels as if there is too much everything at the end of anything. It’s the reason some people give for leaving families behind, because they can’t find a way to endure even one more day of the pressure. People turn to alcohol and drugs trying to escape the reality of life. So why does this happen? Many times these people don’t know Christ as Saviour and they feel hopeless. For Christians, they’ve taken their eyes off their heavenly help and are looking too hard at the earthly problems. We must keep in mind, if we’re a child of the King, our King is King of everything, and King forever. Nothing is beyond His domain or His power. NOTHING!
In 2 Kings 6:17 Elisha says; “…LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” Sounds like a miracle that the servant saw God’s protection. What I find amazing is that Elisha had already seen the hand of the Lords protection in 2 Kings 6:16 When he said to the servant “…Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” In the Spiritual Mind’s eye of Elisha, God was always there. He always is.
Life can be taxing at times. Most often, if we step back we’ll find, we caused most of it. However, the promise of God to the child of God is still true. Heb. 13:5 “…for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” For Elisha, that’s what he saw.
