And Elisha prayed...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 6:17
Jesus said they hated Him without a cause. The real children of God are clothed with light and power and with the Holy Ghost from heaven, sent from the eternal throne of God. The world does not know us, because it did not know Him, so the devil brings all his forces into the battle against Jesus and His saints. But He that is in us is greater than all that are against us. The Lord will fight our battles even if He has to bring down all the armies of heaven.
When the prophet Elisha was surrounded by the enemies of the Lord, his servant was frightened because he was sure that they would be killed. The prophet of God, however, was calm. He looked up to God and said, "Open the young man's eyes." His eyes were opened, and he looked around. He saw the armies of the Lord with horses and chariots of fire. God sent all the artillery of heaven to surround just one prophet of God and his servant. God will do the same for us when we call upon Him.
Lord, fight my battles and be victorious
in Your might. Amen.
