Open Our Eyes

Open Our Eyes By Kirk Hunt


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 NKJV


Maybe your relationship with Jesus is so deep and rich that nothing surprises you. Perhaps your relationship with God is so intense that you and He discuss everything in detail. That level is my goal, not my current testimony.


Many mornings I wake up and wonder: How is God going to work it out? When? Have I been forgotten?


Don’t get me wrong: I trust God. He is sovereign. He has proven Himself over and again. If He says I should, I will. If He say it will, then it shall. Still, some days, my too human hearts longs to see. On occasion, He has let me peek.


Elisha obviously had a close relationship with God. Elisha’s servant lived and worked in the daily presence of God and supernatural miracles. Yet, he needed his eyes opened to see the divine power and provision around him.


God is too faithful to forget you. His power is more than enough for any circumstance. You need your eyes opened to see His presence and purpose in your life.


Wanting to see is okay. He understands His human children. If we seek His heart and purposes, He will let us peek.


Think:           I want to see God’s presence and purpose in my life.


Pray:               “Lord, open my eyes to Your power and provision for my life.”
