There was this young man with the prophet Elisha who became terrified when enemy armies surrounded the two of them one morning (2 Kings 6:15-18). Yet Elisha prayed for the man’s eyes to be opened to see the enormous armies of the Lord that were protecting the two of them. When I have walked through dark times in my life, I take refuge in the fact that the God that I serve is one of strength and power. This prayer (and song) has helped me trust in God when I’m most desperate for Him.
I know Who goes before me
I know Who stands behind
The God of angel armies
Is always on my side
