Sunrise in Dothan



Even when war breaks out against me, I will remain confident. In the second part of our EVEN THOUGH series, Louie Giglio encourages us to build a defiant faith that can stand despite the very visible arrows of our enemies.

In 2 Kings 6, Elisha’s eyes were open to see what his servant could not; Elisha had a defiant faith that allowed him to see the unseen protection around them when they were surrounded by their enemies. That same protection is ours today; it’s up to us to ask for our eyes to be open and see God at work all around us!

Key Takeaway

The sunrise in Dothan demonstrates the power of God opening our eyes and the defiant faith it can build in us. With open eyes, we can see the Lord’s protection around us, even in the darkest days. Though, it is our responsibility to pray to our almighty God and ask for our eyes to be opened!
