A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
II Kings 6:16
“And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.”
The enemies of Elisha, the man of God, wanted him dead.So Elisha and his servant would move from place to place.One day they found him in Dotham.So that they might capture him they had the city surrounded by a great army.Elisha’s servant saw the great army surrounding the city so he said: “What are we going to do?”Elisha answered “Fear not for those with us are far greater than those with them.”There was an angelic force protecting Elisha.Angels are active in the affairs of our world.Oh, we don’t see them but they are at work.The Angel of the Lord encampeth round those that fear the Lord.(Psalm 34:7)Daniel spent the night in a den of lions with no harm to him and he declared “My God hath sent His angel to shut the lions mouth.” (Dan. 6:22)We need to remember when the Lord is on our side we have many more for us than those against us.In Hebrews 13:2 we are told some entertained angels unaware.They have been around us and we didn’t even know it.
For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
