2 Kings 6:16 “Do not be afraid,” Elisha answered, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed, “O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw that the hills were full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

When fear entered the heart of Elisha’s servant because they were surrounded, Elisha prayed for his servant’s eyes to be opened. He wasn’t referring to his natural eyes, but his spiritual eyes. After Elisha’s prayer, the servant saw heaven’s army surrounding their enemy.

Our natural eyes can deceive us into thinking we’re limited. We may think there’s limited protection, limited finances, limited jobs, limited spouses, etc. That’s not true. When we partner with God, there is no lack. There is more with us than we can naturally see. Using our spiritual eyes, we’re limitless.

If we only see $250 in our bank account, fear may enter our minds knowing we have bills due. It’s at that moment we need to open our spiritual eyes and see $250,000 in our account or our bills paid. If we see crime in our neighborhood, let’s open our spiritual eyes and see ourselves and our property protected. If we see everyone getting married, sadness may enter in, but by opening our spiritual eyes we can see ourselves happily married.

Have we lost it? Are we being delusional? No. We’re simply using our second set of eyes where there’s no lack and all things are possible with God (Matt 19:26). Carnally minded people and people in the world won’t get it, but when we place our faith in God’s resources, we’ll always have enough of everything.
