The King of Syria surrounds the city where Elisha the Prophet is in an effort to gain the edge he needed to win a war. Are you surrounded? Are you out numbered? Are you over loaded today? The Prophet's servant looks outside and is overwhelmed by the size of the army. He thinks it's all over and done!!
"Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." (2 Kings 6:14-17 KJV)
"Fear not: for they that be with us are more". In spite of what it looks like to the natural eye, look at your circumstances with your Spirit. I assure God has everything under control, so TRUST HIM!! I've said many times that trusting God by faith to do the impossible is the most difficult thing you will ever do when there is no way out of the mess you are in at this moment in time. God's Spirit Warriors are on your side and on call 24/7!!!
