Often, we know that which we ought to do, but the knowing to do right does not make us immune from the wrong. Whatsoever is not of faith is sin. That is to say, acting on our own, or self-will, will always lead us into trouble, or through this, we’ll find ourselves in a place of hurt, a condition or a situation wherewith we ought not to be. Nevertheless, when the uncertainty of fear buckled the knees in helplessness and imprisons the mind in hopelessness; may we acknowledge our situation, not to dwell therein, but as babes, to seek the hands of the Master. For in us is hopelessness, so we can cry out to Him as our sure Anchor of stability.
Such was the account of Elisha the man of God and his servant. Though the servant witnessed a miracle of a great proportion, but like many of us, soon he was overtaken with fear, the fear of uncertainty. Therein he voiced out his fear and uncertainty “What shall we do?” as recorded in 2 Kings 6:15
Early the next morning Elisha's servant got up, went out of the house, and saw the Syrian troops with their horses and chariots surrounding the town. He went back to Elisha and exclaimed (shouted), "We are doomed, sir! What shall we do?"
Don't be afraid, Elisha answered. We have more on our side than they have on theirs.
Then he (Elisha) prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!" The LORD answered his prayer, and Elisha's servant looked up and saw the hillside covered with horses and chariots of fire (angels) all around Elisha.
In fear, may our eyes be open, not to see the uncertainty of our situation, but the possibilities. For with God, all things are possible to those who believe.
Going through so many changes
What's the news for today?
Somebody's hurt, somebody's aching
Somebody's trying to find a way
A heavy heart can break your will
A troubled soul leaves time standing still
If you're hurting please don't hide
Lift up your head I'm on your side
When every mountain seems too high
And every river looks too wide
When my dreams are lost at sea
Jesus rescues me!
My faith is strong and carries me
Though sometimes weak I still believe
My life is built on this desire
Through the flood and through the fire
Jesus rescues me
I know you're looking for an answer
Searching for some hope to hold
Empty hands leave you waiting
Praying for a miracle
Jesus hears every cry
He sees the walls that we can't climb
And He will heal your hurting soul
And lead you safely to His Home
