Chariots of Fire

February 8, 2011 Donna New

I’ve been listening to Nicole Nordeman a little lately. She’s a girl with a deep heart and anointed words. And in one of her songs she said she didn’t need to know there were chariots of fire surrounding her she wanted to hear that God still counted the hairs on her head. She needed that intimate knowledge of Him and an intimate word from Him.

Last night I needed to hear something from God. And it was that my family is protected physically, kind of how angels work. I pray funky prayers sometimes and I need to be sure I’m praying truth. So someone led me to 2 Kings 6:15-17. There is a servant of Elisha who comes outside in the morning to see a bunch of chariots riding up to fight the school Elisha had. The servant ran to tell Elisha and Elisha prayed “Lord, let him see that those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” The servant’s eyes were opened and he saw a mountain covered with chariots of fire. That was exactly what the servant needed. That was exactly what I needed. The heavenly warriors are there in the exact number, even in generous number, needed for the battle.

So some days I’m like Nicole, needing an intimate moment from the Lord. I’m kind of childlike and need reassurance and a whisper in my ear. And some days the reassurance I need comes in chariots of fire. The Lord is so loving and so perfect to be exactly what our hearts are hungering for.
