Lord, Open My Eyes (2 Kings 6:8-17)Bro. Mike Meade, September 4, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Elisha prayed for God to open his eyes, so that he may see. Elisha was being blinded by the adversary and needed the Lord to help him.
We are being blinded each and every day by the devil as well. It doesn't matter if you've been saved or not, the devil is not going to give up on trying to make you stumble and fall.
Pastor Justin is away on a weekend trip, so today Bro. Mike Meade shows us some of the blindfolds the devil uses to cause us to stumble. Maybe you're being blindfolded and don't even realize it...

2 Kings 6:8-17
8Then the king of Syria warred against Israel, and took counsel with his servants, saying, In such and such a place shall be my camp. 9And 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. 10And 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. 11Therefore 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? 12And 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. 13And 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. 14Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about. 15And 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? 16And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 17And 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. (KJV)
