Fists to the face, arms thrust into my back, I’ve been under attack. Falling so many times, strength failing, exhaustion setting in. My friends and family have also been under attack. Satan has been trying his best to disrupt everything. Trying His best to throw me down and knock me out. Today though, as I’m under attack I remember to look up to the hills and see The Lord’s army that surrounds me and fights with me and for me.
“When the servant of the man of God got up early and went out, he discovered an army with horses and chariots surrounding the city. So he asked Elisha, “Oh, my master, what are we to do?”
Elisha said, “Don’t be afraid, for those who are with us outnumber those who are with them.”
Then Elisha prayed, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” So the Lord opened the servant’s eyes. He looked and saw that the mountain was covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” (2 Kings 6:15-17)
Do you know today that God is the God of angel armies? That He surrounds us and walks with us into our battles? Even as it feels like our heads are being pushed into the dirt, God is fighting for us. He is more powerful than anything we will face. He has entire army at His disposal, an angel army.
Thank you for the army that You have provided me with. Thank you for the tools You have given me to fight against the flesh and dark powers that surrounds me. I know that even though it feels like I’m losing battles, You’ve won the war and one day Satan will be thrown into the fiery pits for good. You are so faithful and hear my cries. Open my eyes to the army that surrounds me and that is fighting for me. Thank you for picking me up constantly in the battle. You don’t let me wallow in sin or defeat God, but you remind me of the victory that You have won and that You are continuing to win in this world.
Let Jesus take over Your battle today.
