Lord, Open my Eyes that I might See!

Divider
O LORD, please open his eyes that he may see.

2 Kings 6:17


When Israel’s opposing king would strategize against God’s people, the Lord would show the prophet, Elisha, what they were planning. It got to the point where this king wanted to kill Elisha and sent his large military to besiege Elisha’s city. Elisha’s servant was beside himself watching the tremendous build up against them.

However, Elisha remained calm and said to the servant, “Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” Afterwards he prayed that God would open the servant’s eyes and he saw the army of heaven protecting them from their enemies.

Sometimes I’m like the servant—I see the circumstances playing out all around me. They tell me that things are going to get worse, they remind me of all the bad things that can happen, and they coax me to having a fearful heart. Yet, in these moments, I’ve learned to pray Elisha’s prayer for myself, “Lord, open my eyes that I might see!”

I want to see my situation the way God sees it. I want to see my circumstances in the presence of God’s promises to me. I want to see the possibilities instead of the limitations. I want to see that those who are with me are more than those who are against me. I can only see this way because of the Spirit of God.

When God opens my eyes to see, I experience His peace that passes all understanding. I discern that He is using these events to grow my faith. I recognize that God is greater than my circumstances. It’s up to us to ask God for greater vision to experience the greater dimensions of faith.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to see more than my circumstances. Increase my faith and open my eyes to see Your glory in every situation. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
