“Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.”
Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
~ 2 King 6:16-17
Totally clueless and oftentimes plain dumb in troubling situations. I see trouble and just throw up my hands. I see the worst of the situation instead of seeing a situation that God is in control of. He sent horses and chariots of FIRE to surround Elisha! Really? Imagine that! Don’t you wish that you had eyes to see this kind of God power, this kind of answer?? I really wish I had those eyes!
In the next few days, I heard a song on the radio that is based on this passage (at least in my opinion). I had heard it before but never really thought about it. These days, I can’t get it out of my head. It reminds me that I know who is before me and behind me. I know who is IN me – the God of “angel armies”. If you haven’t heard the song, you’ve got to listen to it!
So, to wrap this up – I still don’t have a clue what we are supposed to do about children. I don’t know if God wants us to have biological children or just give that up to pursue adoption. Maybe he wants both, or maybe just biological children, or maybe just adoption. The only thing I DO know is that He's called us to be parents – whatever that looks like. So, I don’t have THE answer I was looking for but I now realize that I have so much more. I have the God of all the universe looking out for me. He postponed a snow storm, protected me in the fog with an empty gas tank as I raced against the storm and barely beat it. If He knows about that one small day, don’t you think He knows about my heart’s desire? I know He does…so whom (or what) shall I fear?
