2 Kings 6:8-23

“Tears shed for self are tears of weakness, but tears shed for others are a sign of strength” (Billy Graham).

The king of Syria planned to make war with Israel. The prophet Elisha warned the Israelite king. Now, the king of Syria wanted to destroy him. Little did he know how unconquerable was Elisha’s powerful God. Elisha’s fearful servant thought death was imminent when he saw the great Syrian army. Elisha admonished him not to fear because those with them outnumbered the Syrian army.

We, too, need to stand with God against injustice, poverty, lawlessness, and other violations of God’s law. We see the enemy all around us but we must open our eyes to see the army of God with us. When our faith is strong, we can strengthen those who do not see God’s army. We know that God is protecting us by His right hand of righteousness.

Like Elisha, we have angels camped around us. We too, can overcome evil with good.
