I love some Old Testament! These are the books that show our Gods power and might, and faithfulness to those who BELIEVE HIM, and are busy about HIS work. HE is the same today, tomorrow, forever..I do believe this! As the LORD brought me upon this section of scripture last night, I saw many many world issues we face today, not much different than this time period. I looked at the fear of the servant of Elisha, and we resemble him. Fear in what is around us, and what appears to have taken control. And I must tell you..things are not necessarily as the appear. You see, my GOD is in control, and although things may not unfold the way I want them to, it doesn’t change not one thing about HIM. I love that knowledge! If we could see the war in the heavenlies all around us, how different would it be…I think it would change everything! But we walk by faith and not by sight…this I know..but maybe we do not ask for the right things, and then Believe it, without reservation…why? fear..Fear not for the LORD is with you! I needed this, and thought I would share..
II Kings 6:15-19
15 When the servant of the man of God rose early in the morning and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was all around the city. And the servant said, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?” 16 He said, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, please open his eyes that he may see.” So 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. 18 And when the Syrians came down against him, Elisha prayed to the Lord and said, “Please strike this people with blindness.” So he struck them with blindness in accordance with the prayer of Elisha. 19 And Elisha said to them, “This is not the way, and this is not the city. Follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek.” And he led them to Samaria.
This is the legacy I hand down to my children…you see, this same GOD/Yahweh, is also my ABBA/Daddy, I refuse to walk in fear, and I refuse to let my children think for one minute that their GOD is less than what the Bible says HE is..as a believer this is part of your legacy/family treasure..believe it, then pass it on…(we do have a rich heritage in Christ!)
