"And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha." 2 Kings 6:16,17
During the times when we know that we have heard from the Lord on a matter, or He has given us a promise that we are standing on, or we are endeavoring to carry out a plan He is directing us to fulfill, we will often stand alone. We may not find anyone who will stand with us, who will be in agreement or who will support us. On the contrary, it may seem as if there are more standing against us. They don't share the same vision, they don't believe you have heard from God, they are negative concerning the situation. When you share it with them, they don't support you but oppose and discourage you instead. It is during those times when you feel alone.
Take heart this morning, you are not alone. Like the servant of Elisha we can't see past what we see in the natural. But what we see with our natural eyes is not always a true indication of the way things actually are. There are more that are with you than you see at the moment. When you have truly heard from God, the host of heaven is standing with you.
The bottom line is that no matter how much opposition you may encounter or how alone you may feel... if God is for you then you have a majority standing with you- He makes up the majority all by Himself.
Have a great day. If God is standing with us, we are never standing alone.
