Scripture reading for April 7th: 2nd Kings 3-6
Key Scriptures: 2nd Kings 6:15-17 “When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early in the morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full or horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
Elisha and his servant were being hunted by the Arameans because Elisha was giving information from the Lord to expose their army tactics against Israel. The servant saw the army of the Arameans surrounding their city and went to warn the man of God. Elisha prayed for revelation for his servant and his eyes beheld the invisible reality of the angel armies protecting them!
Rejoicing in God’s protection: God promises us that we are never alone and surely not outnumbered! “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the One who is in you is greater than the one that is in the world.” (1st John 4:4)
