“And I looked, and rose, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them: remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses.”

Nehemiah 4:14


Do you remember the story of Elisha and his servant? Let’s do a quick study on this Bible story in today’s devotional.

Elisha’s servant woke up in the morning to see soldiers with their horses and chariots surrounding his master’s house. He was shocked and afraid as he called out Elisha his master. Elisha responded to him in this scripture, “And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them,” 2 Kings 6:16. Glory!

God is speaking to you through today’s scripture, He is reaffirming His word to you about that threatening situation or confronting circumstances. God says that you should not be afraid; He is with you and also in you. The only reason you might be caused to fear is if you don’t have God in you. This means you stand all by yourself and the arrows of the enemies can easily penetrate you. Return to God today and be secured in Jesus. But if you are steadfast in your relationship with God, then you have nothing to be afraid of.

When faced with trials of faith, we should remember that the God of all possibilities is at work in our lives. May the Lord open the eyes of our understanding and fill us with the Spirit of Faith in Jesus’ name. Amen

Further study: 2 Kings 6:8-23

Charge: Be not afraid because greater is He that is in you than He that is in the world.

Stay assured in Christ.
