You pray but your eyes are not opened spiritually. You pray but never believe you are covered. You pray but think God is out there and He is not watching. You think God is too busy to attend to you. Your are wrong. How can you pray and still be a prey? Why should you be overwhelmed by that mountain when you are standing on Mount Zion?
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.” (2 Kings 6:17)
When the king of Syria sent his great army to surround the city were Elisha was dwelling. The servant of Elisha was afraid. He must have said his last prayers and waited for the worse but when his eyes were opened he saw horses and chariots surrounding them, he knew that the battle was of the Lord.
Why should you be afraid of those who gather against you? Why are you so terrified by those assassination threats? Why are you horrified by the plans of the wicked? Why are you afraid of the economic meltdown? Why are you troubled because of the doctor’s report? Why do fear to take a bold step to achieve the impossible? Why shedding tears because of that situation which you refused to share with anybody? Why are you so naive to know that YOU ARE TOO SURROUNDED TO SURRENDER.
You are surrounded by an invisible force, an army that God has sent to fight your battle. You are too scared to notice them. Don’t give a damn of the evil you see. Don’t succumb to the challenges of life. I bet you, God’s angels are on assignment to take charge over you. He that is in you is greater than he that is in the world.
You are too connected to be affected. Believe me.
