2023 Day 184 – 2 Kings 5-8

The king of Syria sent a great army at night to surround the city of Dothan and attempt kill Elisha.  When Elisha’s servant woke up and saw that they were surrounded by this army, he was scared and asked Elisha what they were going to do.  Elisha’s response was one that we can use in our lives when we are troubled.  “He said, ‘Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”’ (2 Kings 6:16)  Elisha then prayed for God to allow the servant to see what He had provided for their protection.  The servant saw the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (vs. 17)  God showed him these horses and chariots that were protecting them from the horses and chariots of the Syrian army.  Our Heavenly Father knows exactly what we need and provides a solution that perfectly meets that need just like he did here with Elisha.  “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?” (Romans 8:31-32)
