More Than Those

When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.  (2 Kings 6:15–17, NIV 1984).

My Musings“Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”  We may not be able to see them, but they are there.  And unless the LORD withdraws His hand of protection, which sometimes His Sovereign will determines is best, no one (or no thing) can touch us.  That does not mean we should be reckless or foolish, but neither do we need to shrink back in fear. “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”  (2 Timothy 1:6–7, NIV 1984).

My Advice – “The one who is in [us] is greater than the one who is in the world.”  (1 John 4:4, NIV 1984). “[And] though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:3–, NIV 41984).  And while “some trust in chariots and some in horses, we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”  (Psalm 20:7, NIV 1984).  Not much in the way of advice that I can add to this.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
