Be Thou My Vision
Psalm 119:18; 2 Kings 6:8-23
Elisha was a prophet of Israel, but he also was kind of a spy letting the King know if the Syrian army was up to anything. The Syrians were aware of this so they figured if they capture Elisha it would solve their problem.
One night the Syrian army surrounded Elisha and his young, new servant. The servant was very concerned about the situation, asking, “What should we do?” But Elisha had a confident belief about him. He knew that God would protect them. He believed what King David had said that God’s angels would surround and protect them.
Elisha knew that this confidence comes from experience and knowing how God takes care of His own, so he prayed that God would open the eyes of his servant to see the Lord’s Angel armies all around them. And God did it! The servant looked around and there were horses and fiery chariots all around ready to protect him and Elisha.
Can you imagine that? …
Seeing all those fiery horses and chariots on all sides? How exciting!
Trouble on Every Side
2020 has been one of those years with so much trouble on every side. I pray that God has opened your eyes to see His armies standing ready to defeat your enemies. I pray that God will give you the confidence of Paul when he wrote. “We are hard-pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair” 2 Corinthians 4:8-12
Let’s walked with confidence into the new year that God has it all under control.
Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart Nought be all else to me, save that Thy art Thou my best thought in the day and the night Waking or sleeping, Thou presence my light Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true word I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord Thou my great Father and I Thy true son Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight Be Thou my armor and be Thou my might Thou my soul shelter, and Thy my high tower Raise Thou me heavenwards, oh power of my power Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise Thou mine inheritance through all of my days Thou and Thou only though first in my heart High king of heaven my treasure Thou art Oh high king of heaven, when battle is done Grant heaven's joy to me, bright heaven sun Christ of my own heart, whatever befall Still be my vision, though ruler of all
