If We Only Knew

So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” — 2nd Kings 6:16

Worry and anxiety are two of the most crippling emotional conditions that we face. With hindsight being 20/20, our nearsightedness is what can be consuming. The circumstances that we face that cause our perplexed state seem to be paramount. Thinking back on how many times I became fearful of an event that ended up working out. It’s usually the things outside our control that tend to get us the most.

In the account in 2nd Kings Chapter 6 we see Elisha, the Prophet of God being a picture of the Holy Spirit in our lives. The man can see the future, is made aware of conversations that take place elsewhere and had the power of God as his defense.

I only wish I had the vision that Elisha had, imagine seeing the unseen? When was the last time a threatening situation was before you and with the calmness of man amongst boys, you shrugged it off and found peace in the midst of a trial. Reminiscent of Jesus in the boat during the storm? If only we could see the unseen, “If We Only Knew”

“If We Only Knew” the love of God that knows what’s best for us, the times we only see a problem and not the solution. I often see things as a hindrance instead of a lesson. Imagine the immediate peace that came over the servant of Elisha when his eyes were open and the chariots of fire outnumbered the enemy? How many times on the other side of a trial, we see that the hand of God was there all along? “If We Only Knew” the army of Angels that encamp around us and the protection of God that nothing can come into our lives without His approval, “If We Only Knew”.

So today, if you only see the insurmountable hurdles, don’t let it cause you go astray, wait on the Lord, ask God to open your eyes to see the wings that will help you soar over those problems.

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint
