#3569 – Elisha’s Servant

Good morning people who are praying for your spiritual eyes to be opened

There is an awesome story found in 2 Kings 6:8-23. I won’t give too much of the story away, but suffice to say, an army came against Elisha and his servant – an army against two men.

Elisha’s servant wakes up in the morning and sees the army. Understandably he is scared. This was not a dream or something he was making up; this was their reality – an army was surrounding them ready to attack.

Now look at Elisha’s response:

2 Kings 6:16-17 NIV “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha PRAYED, “Open his EYES, Lord, so that 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.

Like Abram that we looked at yesterday, I believe there was a moment between Elisha telling his servant that there were more on their side than on the side of the enemy, and Elisha taking the next step of praying for his servant to have his spiritual eyes opened to SEE what he was saying.

Again, it’s important to understand that spiritual sight is the work of the Holy Spirit; the Spirit of revelation. But it’s equally important to note that Elisha prayed for this.

Let’s follow his example and pray that we may SEE what God has said.
