A man of God Elisha once asked God to open the eyes of his servant, and God did! He allowed the servant's faith to increase by showing him that God's heavenly host were all around them, ready to serve God's cause. Even though there was an army against them, God's angels were there ready to smite the enemy. Only God can open our eyes to the spiritual realm which is still in existance and very active. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. As believers we can have total faith in God's ability to help, no matter what things "look like" in the natural world.
