Whom Shall I Fear

...Then he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city.
15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.

16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

II Kings 6:14b-17

My daughter asked me to listen to this song in the car tonight...she handed me her earphones and I began to listen....Even though it's not a new song, I'd never heard this before.  I began to hear the first verse but my heart is so heavy, it couldn't bear to finish listening I asked her to please turn it. . . My heart has been so broken, and I just couldn't bear to cry anymore.  Soon we got to our house...Bryan pulled into the garage and then my daughter said, "MOM!  Turn up the radio!  I can't believe this song is on!!  It's the same song you told me to turn off earlier tonight!"   She stepped out of the car and let me sit there in the garage, listening, sobbing, and taking it as a message from the Lord. I knew it was God's way of speaking to my heart "Listen to this song.  Be encouraged.  I will not delay."

Claiming His promise!!  Do not delay, Father.  I declare my trust in You.
In Jesus' Name,
