I heard it in his voice today.
The fight. The battle.
It brought me to my knees in prayer.
I'm reminded of the Bible story where Elisha asked God to open the servant's eyes so that he could see the great army that God had sent. At first, all the servant could see was that they were surrounded by the enemy. What would we see if God opened our eyes to what He had all around us? What would we see if God opened our eyes to His plans and purpose?
... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
