What to Do?

“They” were after Elisha and “they” gathered as a large number of men in chariots. Many more than two people, Elisha and his servant, could face with any slight chance of victory on their own. In fact it was sure defeat. That was the scene Elisha’s servant woke to. So his first words of the morning were, “Oh my, master, what are we to do?”

Elisha said, “Don’t worry. Those who are with us outnumber those who are with them.” Elisha prayed, “Show him, Lord.” God opened the servant’s eyes to an abundance of chariots of fire defending the two of them. (2 Kings 6:15-17 Paraphrased by author)

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace.”

Some days we face we say “O my, Master, what are we to do?” There may be an overwhelming amount of things to be done. There may be anxiety or even fear of something in our day. We just may be too down and exhausted to face the world. “Don’t worry, He who is with us is more than all we have to face.” Just get a glimpse of the light of His glory and grace. Sit with Him a few minutes. Talk to Him about your day, those chariots outnumbering you. And let Him tell you how He loves you and how you can hold His hand and He’ll be right beside you all day. He’s precious and loving but when His daughter or son needs Him He fights for them until He’s conquered those chariots.
