It is time that we fearful servants open our eyes and see that those who are with us are more than those who are with them. No, we are not assured that a great physical army will protect us from harm, but this should not discourage us. “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood…but against the rulers of the darkness of this age.” (Ephesians 6:12) We are at war with the Devil, but we should not fear, for we have been given an arsenal of armor and powerful weaponry. (Ephesians 6:13-17.) Have faith in this, and there is no reason why we should not be brave just as Elisha was when he stared death in the face. Believe as Paul did when he said in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
I challenge you today to open your eyes and see the power you’ve been given. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation.” (Romans 1:16.) Believe in it, obey it, and share it!
