When You Are Surrounded

By: Jenifer Metzger

Have you ever felt as though you were surrounded? Your problem caving in from all sides. Maybe it's health or debt or a broken relationship or fear or even an addiction. We've all felt that way at one time or another. We've all felt that crippling sensation of being surrounded by our problem, by our enemy.

What if we realized that even though we may be surrounded by our problem, we were actually surrounded by a very big, very capable God?

When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning,
an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, 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, “Open
his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and
he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
2 Kings 6:15-17

Elisha's servant could only see the enemy surrounding them. He knew that by the looks of it, through human eyes, they were completely surround and stood no chance. But Elisha saw. He saw through heavenly eyes that the Lord was with them. Elisha knew that God was there and was in control.

We need to remember that no matter what battle we are facing, no matter how hard it may seem, we are surrounded by a heavenly army. An army that does not, cannot, lose. The God in you is stronger than an battle around you.
