And when the servant of the man of God arose early and went out, there was an army, surrounding the city with horses and chariots. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, and said, “ Lord , I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” II Kings 6:15-17 NKJV
Our above text tells of the servant of Elisha. He was filled with anxiety attacks because of what his physical eyes saw. He was afraid and scared. This servant has been with Elisha and has also behold a lot of miracles. Still he was scared.
This is how most born again Christians are in the midst of trials. They easily forget what God has done for them and they focus on what the enemy is trying to do. They forgot that God Almighty does not change. If He could meet your needs yesterday, He will also do it today. For He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Anxiety causes people to take their eyes of God Almighty and make them focus on their problem. That is the trick of satan. Choose to fasten your eyes on your maker (God Almighty) and not on your challenges (Please read 2 Kings 6:13-18).
God Almighty is in the midst of every test and trial that comes our way. Don’t let anxiety rule you. Know for sure God Almighty is always there, right in the midst of all your fears, to deliver you and give you a testimony. Fear not!
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10 NKJV
I say: Fear not in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalms 121:4 NKJV
Let’s pray together:
I thank You for Your Word. I refuse to be anxious. But I commit (call it by name) to You in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. I thank You for helping me, knowing that You’re with me always, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
