What we can’t see
With the Aramean army surrounding them, Elisha’s servant cried, “What shall we do?”
“Do not fear,” Elisha assured him, “for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
Then “the Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha” (2 Kings 6:14-17).
Believers today cannot now see the wonderful things being done for them behind the veil (Hebrews 1:14; 4:14-16; 7:25; 12:22-24).
What we can see
But we can say with the psalmist, “Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from your law” (Psalm 119:18).
Because Christ’s new covenant far surpasses the old, we have greater wonders available to us than the psalmist had under the law.
“Open my eyes . . . .”
