And he answered, Fear not: for they be with us are more than they that be with them – 2nd Kings 6:16
Elisha and Gehazi (the servant of Elisha) were surrounded by the enemy. Elisha placed his trust in God, and he prayed for the eyes of his servant to be opened to see the host of heaven that was with them. We should also pray that God open our eyes to see our help comes from God and the heavenly host.
Fear will come every now then to each us no matter how we have prayed and fasted. Somehow fear will take a grip on us, but when fear comes, that’s the time we should continue in prayer in order for our faith to be strengthen. Fear doesn’t come from God, but the author of it is Satan. Noticed throughout the Bible whenever the angel of the Lord or the Spirit of the Lord came in contact with someone, the first thing usually was spoken was “Fear Not”. Fear is sin, and it’s hard to hear from God when we’re living in fear. When in fear, the best thing to do is confess to God you’re fearful regarding the situation and ask Him to deliver you from fear.
