Fear Not

The words fear not jumped out at me this morning as I read 2 Kings 6:8-17.

How often have I read those words as I study the pages of my Bible over the years?  God does not want us to fear, not even for a moment and he proves to us over and over again that he is always with us.

In this scripture, the King of Syria had been plotting against the King of Israel.  However, Elisha the Prophet would always warn the King of Israel and he would avoid the trap of the King of Syria. When the King of Syria found out that it was Elisha who had knowledge of his plans he sent his army to fetch Elisha.  When the army surrounded them Elisha’s servant was afraid.  However Elisha said to him;
Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 2 Kings 6:16 KJV (emphasis mine)
Are you like me…sometimes fearful?  It often seems as if the obstacles that the enemy throws in your path are unsurpassable.  They seem bigger than life.  However, they are not bigger than God.

Not Worthy to Be Counted

Do you see people the way God sees them?  I’ve been meditating on that lately as I read David’s journey to becoming king in 1 Samuel 16. Sometimes we are quick to look at people with judgmental eyes based on their outward appearance.

We make snap judgments based on the way they dress, look and many other things.  Even the prophet Samuel wasn’t exempted from this. When God sent Samuel to anoint one of Jesse’s sons  He took one look at Eliab and thought, “Surely this is the LORD’S anointed.

He wasn’t!
