I woke to this verse echoing in my head: “Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.” 2 Kings 6:16
It is from a story of deliverance. The king’s army had surrounded the city and the people were ready to hand over the prophet and his servant to save themselves, but the army was surrounded by an unseen force of heavenly angels! The prophet and his servant surrendered to the army, praying that the army would be struck with blindness. The prophet then led the army straight to their enemy (who wanted to kill them all but the prophet said no - their lives were spared to glorify God).
The old testament is full of these stories to encourage us in times of trouble and uncertainty. The trials that we face only glorify God more when He brings us out of adversity when it seems impossible for anything to improve.
God is still in control and greater than the evil surrounding us.
