(You’ve Got Angels At Your Service!)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Kings 6:15-17 NASB
“Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
I love this account of Elisha and Gehazi his servant. The Bible says the king of Syria sent horses, and chariots, and a great host by night and surrounded the city (2 Kings 6:14). They came for Elisha, the Man of God. But Elisha understood the Word of God, and therefore he was unperturbed. He knew that as the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore (Psalm 125:2 NIV).
You must come to this understanding as well, where you have complete knowledge that the greater One lives in you, and is always present with you. As God’s child, you’re never alone. Hebrews 1:14 tells you that God sent His angels to serve you. You’re surrounded by angels, who according to the Bible have been given charge over you, to keep you, that is, protect you in all your ways (Psalm 91:11). God’s mighty hand of protection is upon your life; hence it doesn’t matter who or what comes against you, you’re never disadvantaged.
1 John 4:4 says “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” You’ve already overcome the adversary. Be conscious of this truth today and always. Live with the realisation that the Lord, with the innumerable company of angels, is with you, and for you. Therefore, nothing can successfully stand against you.
Psalm 103:20; Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 13:5-6
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for your presence with me, and the confident assurance that nothing can successfully stand against me. I live with the consciousness of your indwelling and abiding presence today, declaring that I’m a victor in Christ Jesus. Amen.
