Daily Bible Reading: 2 Kings 6

When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. “Oh, sir, what will we do now?” the young man cried to Elisha. “Don’t be afraid!” Elisha told him. “For there are more on our side than on theirs!” Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” The LORD opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire. ​(2 Kings 6:15-17 NLT)
Open my eyes, and let me see
The king of Aram wanted to capture the prophet Elisha, and he sent troops to sieze him. When Elisha’s servant saw all of the troops surrounding them, he was afraid. Elisha’s prayer was not for deliverance from the circumstances in which they found themselves, but rather that his servant might be able to see the deliverance that God had already provided.
Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has provided deliverance from sin and death. May we see, and by faith, take hold of the salvation God offers us.
O God, often, as I look around me, my vision is limited to what these physical eyes can see or what my finite mind can comprehend. Open my eyes, and let me see a glimpse of Your vision, that any fear I have may be transformed into faith. Amen.
