EYES OPEN TO GOD

I LOVE this promise from God in the Bible: "My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest" (Ex. 33:14). But how can you know God really is with you, and how does His presence appear?

Look at the Hebrew prophet Elisha. Understanding that God's presence was with him wherever he went, he was able to resolve a life-threatening situation. As the account in the Bible explains, Elisha's spiritual intuitions had helped the king of Israel avoid attacks from the Syrian army on several occasions (see II Kings 6). Consequently, the king of Syria, wishing to silence the prophet once and for all, sent his military forces to encircle Dothan, the desert camp where Elisha and his assistant were staying. When the assistant discovered the army lying in wait and reported back, Elisha said, "Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them" (verse 16).
