THE TABLE HAS TURNED!
Therefore sent he there horses and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night and compassed the city about.” 2Kings 6:14
IN JESUS TODAY:
This morning the question is, what if you woke to find your enemy had surrounded you?
This is how it was for Elisha and his servant on this morning in 2Kings 6:14.
Here we see that Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the enemy, the Syrian Army, and the King that so badly wanted to capture the king of Israel and make their land the extended land of Syria, but in order to do that they had to capture Elisha the prophet, because Elisha was reporting all that he saw to the King of Israel.
ARISE AND SEE THE TRUTH…
One morning Elisha and his servant arose from their sleep to find themselves surrounded by the enemy, so what did they do? They prayed to God that the Syrian Army that surrounded them would be stricken with blindness. Elisha’s servant was afraid, and began asking Elisha,
“What are we going to do?” Elisha being so full of faith in God remained calm and eased his servant’s fear with these words, “There is more of us than there is of them!”
If we would realize this truth then we would never fear to preach the Gospel! Friends there are more of us than there is of them!
So the table was turned and through God’s power and His wisdom the Syrians were blinded, just as a great portion of today’s people that do not believe in Jesus and his grace are blinded.
In this story the Syrians that surrounded the city were escorted to the camp of there enemy, because of their blindness, to the King of Israel, yes the same King that they sought to destroy was now surrounding them!
Our God is powerful! He will deliver us in our times of trouble, as we read,
“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust; his trust shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.” Psalm 91:4-7
