Welcome to today’s TJO2 post. Jamie and I were doing our morning devotions/Bible Study. We just finished a study on Psalms 119; specifically, the last eight verses (169-176). Afterwards, we talked about how we love how the Bible testifies to itself. This led me to remember something I had read in either I or II Kings.
It took me awhile to find it because I could not remember if it was Elijah or Elisah who said it. I found it in II Kings 6:15-17.
“15 Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! [a]What shall we do?” 16 So he [b]answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
So, today, be bold and courageous! For we are not alone and God is not a liar.
For He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”
