2 Kings 6:15-17 (AMP); When the servant of the man of God rose early and went out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was around the city. Elisha’s servant said to him, Alas, my master! What shall we do? [Elisha] answered, Fear not; for those with us are more than those with them. Then Elisha prayed, Lord, I pray You, open his eyes that he may see. And the Lord opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw, and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
One day, the king of Syria, frustrated by how Elisha had singlehandedly breached his military intelligence and had somehow gained an invisible front row seat in the king’s war planning meetings, decided that the next military strategy would be to capture Elisha (2 Kings 6:8-14).
In our theme scripture, Elisha’s servant awakens to an entire army surrounding the city. In a state of despair, he exclaims, “What shall we do?!”
Elisha responds with the calmness of a man with spiritual sight. “Fear not, for those with us are more than those with them.”
The most interesting part of this scripture is that when God opened the eyes of Elisha’s servant, he saw “the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” They were not around the servant and Elisha, they were not around the city, they were around only Elisha.
By spiritual principle, what you cannot see is not yours to own.
The hosts were there for Elisha’s sake because he was a man of spiritual sight and by divine vision, he was entitled to what he beheld. Possession is the privilege of a man who sees; uncertainty is the kinsman of he who is blind.
Everything you are believing God for becomes yours in the instant it is revealed to you and you see it through the eyes of revelation.
As believers, we don’t just pray. We pray to see.

GOLDEN NUGGET: By spiritual principle, what you cannot see is not yours to own. Possession is the privilege of a man who sees; uncertainty is the kinsman of he who is blind.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this great truth. You have blessed me with clear sight; I see with distinction. Fear and uncertainty are far from me because I am a man of vision. The spirit of revelation works mightily in me and causes me to behold great and precious promises in Your Word. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
