We live in a world today where we as the body of Christ have fallen asleep. We walk around spiritually blinded by the things of this world. We make our circumstances our God. We continually make gods out of anxiety, worry, depression, fear, and money. We give so much power to things that cannot save us. If you don’t agree, ask yourself what do you spend your days meditating on? What has your time? What are you investing in? I believe the bigger we make our lives, circumstances, and problems, the smaller we make God in our lives.
Often times we become fearful and intimidated by what we see. The revelation that needs to take place is the wisdom of what we don’t see. 2 Corinthians 4:18 says, we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. God wants us to set our eyes on Him. Jesus Christ should be our focus and our spiritual sight no matter what is going on in and around our lives.
One of the most profound stories to me in the Old Testament is in 2 Kings 6:15-17. Elisha’s servant becomes afraid when he discovers an army surrounding the city. Elisha tells his servant, “Don’t be afraid, for those who are with us outnumber those who are with them.” Elisha then goes a step further and prays, “Lord, please open his eyes and let him see.” When the Lord opened the servant’s eyes he was able to see that the mountain was covered with horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
I believe God is still telling us today to not be afraid because greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world. Don’t allow life to distract and deceive you from seeing the bigger picture. The bible declares that God is with us. He will never leave us or forsake us. Continue in Christ and He will direct your path. Know in your heart that you win.
I pray that your spiritual eyes be opened right now in the name of Jesus. I pray that the word of Truth would be life to your body. I speak a greater boldness and a greater confidence over your life today. I pray that no matter where you find yourself right now in your life that you would be encouraged by the one who dwells richly in you.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
