VICTORY OVER USA'S ENEMIES
11 Days of Prayer Day 21
Written By Linda A. Knowles
"For the Son of Man came to seek
and to save that which is lost."
I am reminded of the story of Elisha found in 2 Kings 6. The King of Aram went against the nation of Israel and was at war with them. He was sending his troops down to capture Elisha. Elisha, as a prophet, warned the King of Israel of various places, and in response to Elisha's warning, the King of Israel was always careful. The King of Aram called his servants together and was upset asking which one of them who was gathered there was on Elisha's side. One of his servants had told the King of Aram that no one who was with the King was on Elisha's side but had further stated that that Elisha the prophet kept telling the King of Israel the things the King of Aram was speaking in his bedroom. Disconcerting? Very, but God was protecting His people and the nation of Israel and spoke to Elisha telling him what to tell the King of Israel in order to protect the nation of Israel and the people God called His own.
The King of Aram had finally gotten a report from one of his servants as to where Elisha could be found, and shortly thereafter, the King of Aram had his military surrounding the city of Dotham. Elisha's servant was scared and Elisha told him not to be afraid. Elisha then asked the Lord to open the eyes of his servant, and then this happened in Verse 17, "...And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha." THAT IS OUR GOD, FOLKS! Just as Elisha and his servant were surrounded by the Heavenly Hosts fighting for them, so are we. Our God has given us the Victory over our enemies. Our God is protecting our country. Our God is protecting our President and those who are for our President who are working closely at his side in order to protect this country. Stand your ground and watch the Victory of Our Lord and Our God who upholds us by His righteous right hand. He is Our Victory!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, You are Our God Who Lives! Blessed be the Rock of Our Salvation. We shall sing praises unto You for You are the One who has thrown the horse and the rider into the sea. You are the God who has trampled down our enemies. You cause our enemies to fight against each other. You are the One who has caused our victory and given us victory. We come against every enemy of our nation, not with worldly weapons, but we come against our enemies in the name of Jesus Christ who is able to deliver us, the People of God and our nation, out of the hands of our enemies. We give You all the praise and all the glory due to Your name, and it is in You that we put our hope and our trust. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
