“The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: the Lord is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place. – Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.” Psalm 68:17, 19



Why haven’t we been more aware of the power of this reinforcement? Because we have walked so long in the outer realm of the senses of the flesh. But the more we learn to “walk in the Spirit”, the more we shall be conscious that we are upheld by an invisible host of “ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation. (Hebrews 1:14)



“Fear not: for they that be with us, are more than they that be with them (that is, with the enemy). And Elisha prayed, 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. (II Kings 6:16-17)



The oppression was great, and the adversary was heavy against Israel. Then God moved upon Deborah, and she sent for Barak and encouraged him to gather Israel to battle against the hosts of Sisera, and they did so, but they were not alone, for we read, “They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera. (Judges 5:20)



Not only has our lack of spiritual perception held us back from full recognition of our heavenly assistance, but God has been taking us through the dark night of the soul where even the stars don’t shine, that He might perfect our faith. But just because we have not seen them, nor been aware of them, does not mean that they were not there ready to penetrate the darkness again at the time of God’s appointment.



“And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay upon us, all hope that we should be saved was taken away.” But God never suffers us to be tempted above what we are able to bear, sends a message of encouragement, so we can say, “Be of good cheer: for I believe God that it shall be even as it was told me.” (Acts 27:20, 25) We are strengthened anew, and brought into victory again. Praise God!
