SCRIPTURE READING | 2 KINGS 6:24-30, 7:1-20
In our Focal Scripture, the army of Syria heard the noise of chariots and horses, and they fled. They thought it was a human army that gathered against them, they felt it must have been a gathering of different armies, but they had no idea that it was the Lord who caused them to hear that sound. The sound they heard was the noise of a great host; they heard the noise of a greater army.
In 2 Kings 6 vs. 17, Elisha prayed to God to open the eyes of his servant, and that servant saw chariots and horses of fire round about Elisha. That servant saw the heavenly army gathered on the side of Elisha. There was no physical army gathered to fight the Syrian army when they came against Israel again; so the noise they heard was the noise of the armies of heaven. God deployed the armies of heaven against Syria, and they ran.
Friend, God will deploy the armies of heaven against every ‘army’ gathered against you. God will deploy the heavenly host against any man who wants to tamper with your destiny; God will deploy the heavenly host against every hater plotting against your destiny. God will deploy the heavenly host against every roadblock that wants to halt your progress; God is deploying the heavenly host against the enemies of your destiny.
Don’t lose sleep when the gathering against you is too much for you to handle. It may be too much for you to handle as a person, but it is certainly not too much for God Himself to handle. In fact, God doesn’t even need to fight your opposition directly. All He needs to do is to deploy the armies of heaven to do the job.
When Jesus completed His mission on the cross, He took unto Himself the keys of the kingdom, and the same keys He took have been given into your hands. If you have embraced Jesus’ finished work, then you have a right to call heaven’s army into immediate deployment, and be sure that your adversaries will soon be on the run.
DECLARE WITH ME
The armies of heaven shall fight for me, in Jesus’ name!
