Elementary, July 4: Elisha’s Servant is Afraid

Elisha was causing major problems for the evil King Aram. Aram set trap after trap for the Israelites, but Elisha was a prophet of God. God told Elisha where the traps had been set which allowed the Israelites to avoid them. Aram was livid and sent his entire army to capture Elisha. Elisha’s servant was terrified, but not Elisha. Elisha prayed God would open his servant’s eyes to see what he could see. And God did. The servant could finally see that they were surrounded by an army of God’s angels – protecting them from their enemy.
