Today’s reading II Kings 5-7

II Kings 6:16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.

Elisha is in apparent danger. The Syrians were come down. Elisha knew however that God was there protecting him all along. He wanted his servant to know the same and advised him that God would protect them.

God opened the servant’s eyes and let him see the angels that were there protecting them. In the New Testament we are reminded often that we are not alone. He is with us. He is in us. Greater is He that in us than he that is in the world. He will never leave us nor forsake us.

Yet we fear what could happen and wonder why God is not here protecting us. Let this verse remind us that our God is good and that He is here.

You are not alone. God is going to take care of you because you are His!
