When David fought the giant Goliath, while the Israelite armies fretted seeing a man, taunting and defying the armies of the Living God (1 Samuel 17:24), David saw the Creator God who had made him and the giant. This we can perceive from what he tells Goliath, that he came to battle in the name of the Lord of hosts and that on that very day, the LORD shall deliver Goliath into his hands whom he shall smite so that the earth may know that there is a God [in Israel] (1 Samuel 17:45-46). David trusted that the Lord who had promised to be with Israel when they went to war (Deuteronomy 20:1) was there on the battle field alongside him and is the One who prevails over all his enemies (Isaiah 42:13).
When the king of Syria went to war against Israel and sought God’s prophet Elisha, the king sent horses, chariots and an army that compassed around the city of Dothan in which Elisha was. When the servant of Elisha, saw the army with horses and chariots, he fearfully asked Elisha as to what they should do? Elisha assured him that those who were with them outnumbered those who were in the Syrian army and prayed that the Lord open the eyes of his servant so that he may see. When the Lord granted His prophet’s request, the servant’s eyes were opened and in supernatural vision, he saw the mountain full of horses and chariots of fire around Elisha.
Winning the war is not about seeing what/whom we have to win over, but it is about seeing THE ONE with whom we are, who wins the war for us. We must pray that our eyes are opened so that we may see the armies of God fighting with and for us in our Spiritual warfare. The battle is in heavenly realms and as we partake in it, we must not be blind but have supernatural vision, i.e., vision that clearly sees the Supernatural God and his armies fighting for us.
2 Kings 6:8-17 (KJV)
8 Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp.
9 And the man of God sent unto the king of Israel, saying, Beware that thou pass not such a place; for thither the Syrians are come down.
10 And the king of Israel sent to the place which the man of God told him and warned him of, and saved himself there, not once nor twice.
11 Therefore the heart of the king of Syria was sore troubled for this thing; and he called his servants, and said unto them, Will ye not shew me which of us is for the king of Israel?
12 And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.
13 And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan.
14 Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
15 And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do?
16 And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
17 And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
