Elisha’s Servant : God Opens His Eyes To Unseen Realms

Elisha was God’s prophet. God would tell Elisha things and then Elisha would tell the people.

God’s people, His army, had enemies, and Elisha helped God’s army know where to go and what to do, so that they would always be able to win.

This made the enemies angry because they didn’t like always losing.

So the king of the enemies said, “Go find out where Elisha is so that I can stop him! I will capture him, and then he won’t be able to help God’s army beat us anymore.”

The next morning, Elisha’s servant got up early to start his work. “Hm, hm, hm, hm — sweeping the floor. Hm, hm, hm, hm — getting some milk for Elisha’s breakfast. Hm, hm — getting some fresh water to wash my hands. Hm, hm — opening the front door… WHAT?! OHHHHH NO!!!”

All around their house were the enemy’s warriors and horses and chariots. They were all ready to attack them! They had come to take Elisha away. Elisha’s servant was very afraid for Elisha. “Elisha, Elisha! What will we do?! The enemy is surrounding the house to take you away!”

But Elisha wasn’t worried even a little bit. He just chuckled and said, “Don’t be afraid. There are more fighters on OUR side than there are on the enemy’s side.”

“What? More on our side?!” Elisha’s servant thought Elisha was confused. “Uhh, there are only 1, 2… 2 people on our side: me and you. And on the other side there are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10…15…20…25…30…35…50…100...200…300…400…500…” There were way too many on the other side to even count!

“How could there be more on our side when we are only 1, 2 and they are so many?” Elisha’s servant thought of himself as a pretty good counter, so he thought Elisha was confused and needed to count again.

But Elisha was still smiling; he was not confused.

Elisha then asked God, “Please open my servant’s eyes to see the UNSEEN world. He needs some Heaven-Eyes so that he can see what’s really out there.”

At that same second, the servant saw something different outside! (Even though his earth-eyes were already open, he needed those unseen world, Heaven-Eyes to be opened.)

Now instead of just seeing all the enemy soldiers, Elisha’s servant saw something else, too! Covering all the hills and everywhere he looked, there were thousands of shining, blazing, beautiful warriors and horses and chariots all made of fire! It was Heaven’s Army!

Heaven’s fiery angel army was surrounding Elisha on all sides keeping him safe, making sure nothing bad would happen to him. Elisha’s servant didn’t even have to try to 1, 2, 3 count the angels to see that there were WAY more angels and chariots of fire on their side than there were bad guys and chariots of wood on the other side.

Elisha’s servant learned that day that what he could see and count with his earth-eyes was NOT the whole picture. When God opened his Heaven-Eyes, he could see that it was so silly to be afraid. He found out that, “Those who are for us, are MORE than those who are against us.” Now he knew the RIGHT way to both See and to count.
