I chose this week's verse after reading it in a book on Sunday. In a nutshell, Elisha and his servant are all alone and they are surrounded by vast enemy armies. From the looks of things, they don't stand any chance of making it out alive and surviving the attack. Elisha tells his servant to not be afraid because those that are with them are greater than the army they can see. Ultimately Elisha prays for his servant's eyes to be opened so that he can see the army of God that is there with them. God's army is far greater and more powerful than the seen enemy.
Sometimes I need to be reminded of that and have a verse to hang on to. The enemy I see is not greater than God's protection over me and around me. I see earthly circumstances and situations. I pray that God will open my eyes to see Him in every situation. So my verse this week is:
2 Kings 6:16 "Don't be afraid." the prophet answered. "Those who are with us are more than those who are with them."
