2 Kings 6:15-16 (KJV); 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? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
When some Christians quote our theme scripture, they erroneously use it to refer to the number of men in the flesh on their side. They weigh their might by how many allies they have.
That is not the mindset a victor in Christ should have. No matter how many thousands of people are on your side, they can never be the source of your victory.
You must understand the nature of protection that God has placed at your disposal.
This protection guarantees that your victory is never at the hands of men but at the hands of God.
Elisha understood this truth. When his servant shuddered at the sight of the Syrian Army, he pointed him to heaven’s army. This army was greater in number and in strength.
In Psalm 91:11, the Bible says that God will give His angels charge over you. It means that THERE ARE ANGELS IN CHARGE OF YOU.
In fact, He did not limit the number. This means that you are at liberty to command as many as you want.
When Christ was in the garden of Gethsemane, He told the men who came to arrest Him that He could command more than twelve legions of angels (Matthew 26:53).
Whenever any person boasts of a large number of physical allies as the reason for his strength against you, God will always outnumber them with angelic protection on your side. THOSE WITH YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MORE THAN THOSE AGAINST YOU.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Whenever any person boasts of a large number of physical allies as the reason for his strength against you, God will always outnumber them with angelic protection on your side. THOSE WITH YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MORE THAN THOSE AGAINST YOU.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Word. I live my life in the blessed assurance that I am surrounded by heaven’s forces. My trust is not in men but in You, my shield and protector. Victory will always be mine. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
