So, of course you do just what Elisha's servant did above.. you run to your master (God) and cry out to Him "What shall we do?" In other words. "Help! I'm beaten! They've won and I'm doomed!"
I've often asked God to open my eyes so I could see all the angels battling around me. Wouldn't that be cool? But God has always responded. that I couldn't handle it. That seeing both the demons and the angels would be far too frightening. I know He's right. I would probably freak out! So, I go about my day and I usually forget about them.
But they do not forget about me. Nor does the God who sends them to help me. Nor does God forget about you and the army of struggles surrounding you. In fact, at the first sign of the enemy's attack, God already dispatched his host of warring angels... don't believe me? Don't believe God sends angels to help one insignificant person
He did it for Daniel. Daniel was a lone man in a foreign land who saw a terrifying vision from the Lord, read the ancient Scriptures, and understood that he and his people the Jews were in a heap of trouble. So he began to pray and fast. For three weeks he ate no pleasant food and did not clean himself. For three weeks he didn't hear a word from God. No answer. Nothing. Then finally, the archangel Gabriel shows up. We're talking here the General of God's angels.. not some puny low-ranking dude. Here's what he tells Daniel
The first day, God sent his highest ranking angel to help a single human on earth. Who is this prince of Persia who held Gabriel back and fought against him? One of Satan's evil angels in charge of the Kingdom of Persia. Gabriel couldn't take the guy.. so Michael, another archangel, shows up to help! That's 2 of God's Top Generals fighting so Daniel would have his prayer answered.!
I don't know about you, but that really humbles me. It really blows my mind! And it makes me realize just how much God loves us.
So, the next time you feel surrounded by the enemy, the next time you feel outnumbered and defeated, remember, you are not alone! There are a host of angels fighting on your behalf. It may take them awhile to get there, but they are on their way!
Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. Hebrews 12:1 NKJ
