Seeing Through Purified Eyes

Day 360
Verse of the day:

And Elisha prayed, and said, “Lord, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

2 Kings 6:17

What you see is often dependent on where you stand relative to that thing, and is also dependent on what medium you use to view that thing. Your perception and subsequently, your understanding may be colored by some cultural bias, previous experiences, predetermined expectations or even your level of maturity. For example, MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN is to one, a writing on the wall that has no meaning, but to another, a revelation of God’s manifold plans! This doesn’t stop there. Not only do we perceive things differently, our perception and understanding often determine our subsequent actions.

In the above verse, two men are presented – each one with a differing perception of reality. In the prior verses, Elisha’s servant was filled with fear because of what he had perceived. Elisha on the other hand, was unmoved because he had eyes to see greater things than his servant did. Thus, Elisha prayed that Father would open the eyes of His servant. This also is why Christ came, that through our belief in Him, the veil that once covered our eyes and prevented us from seeing clearly would be removed!

Beloved, as you grow in maturity, your perception will continually align with the Truth. You will no longer call a molehill, a mountain, and neither will you misinterpret crucial writings on the wall to be mere scrawlings. Your perception of people will be shaped according to the way Father sees. Your perception of yourself and your circumstances will change too. By virtue of your beholding (i.e. seeing) marvellous things through God’s word to you, your behaviour will be shaped according to the wisdom contained in that word!

Therefore, do not take lightly, your walk with your heavenly Father if you desire to continually see as with eyes purified.

You are blessed!

Beloved, as you grow in maturity, your perception will continually align with the Truth. You will no longer call a molehill, a mountain, and neither will you misinterpret crucial writings on the wall to be mere scrawlings. Click to Tweet

    1. Hi Nd!
      Thanks for reaching out.

      It sounds like you’re asking about seeing in the Spirit…perhaps like Elisha’s servant eventually saw.
      (If I’m incorrect, please let me know but I’ll answer as best as I can).
      As believers, it is normal to experience diverse kinds of perception through the Holy Spirit.
      However, this perception gets sharpened as we continue to yield to the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
      Yielding comes in form of obedience to His voice, trust in His leading, expressing desire to draw closer to Him through actions and even, making our requests known to Him!

      I hope this helps!
      God bless you.
