Our Eye-Opening God

“And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.” Isaiah 29:18

Whenever it feels like all hope is lost, it’s a lie from the devil. Our eyes can sometimes remain clouded and veiled by our human thoughts, words, and actions. When we think and believe we see an outcome or a concluded end to a situation or circumstance, we are actually not seeing.

Hagar, thinking she was all alone, concluded the end of the matter; her son Ishmael was going to die, and there was nothing left to be said and done. God never wrote that script and was with her even on that journey. God opened her eyes, and she saw for the first time and understood that her path was pre-planned. No matter how sudden, upsetting, rough or hard it looked, God was leading her towards that hard path but with a water provision in store and ahead (see Genesis 21:14-19).

Elisha’s servant saw an ambush of enemy troops, but when Elisha prayed to God to open his eyes, he saw the hillside was filled with horses and chariots of fire (see 2 Kings 6:14-17).

Abraham also was tested and almost took his son’s life. He couldn’t see the ram caught in the thicket until his eyes were opened, and “…he looked up and saw…” (see Genesis 22:13).

Whatever path or terrain we find ourselves in this year, let us ask the Lord to open our spiritual eyes to “look up and see” what our physical eyes can’t see due to the cloud of physical distress or discomfort.

For if God can plan ahead for our salvation through His Son Jesus, nothing in our lives can catch our God off guard. Only God knows our end even from the beginning, and He’s factored in all we would need along the way. We are never alone, even when we think or see we are.

    Father, that’s exactly Who You Are – “Our Eye Opening God!”
    *Father God, help us to focus on Jesus’ coming and on meeting Him instead of on our earthly troubles. We ask You to set our minds with opening the eyes of our hearts on You instead of the silly things we focus on. Help m
    us to think of You every day and to pray all the time. Cause us to want to honor You all our days and live each day as though it were our last acknowledging You in our walk and talk. Focus our thoughts, our eyes on You and help us not to get distracted. Helping us to seek after You first and not be an afterthought; You are worthy of our focusing on. That as we keep our focus on You, we will stay in “PERFECT PEACE!’ In Jesus’ name. Amen.

  5. The devil is a liar. Nothing in our lives can catch our God off guard. Lord, I ask you to open up my eyes so that I can see in spirit and in truth. Whatever is coming up against me I send it back to the pit of hell. The pain that I am experiencing is ushering me into my purpose. All hope is not lost God is with us. He sees all and knows all. I trust and believe that He will come through. In the might name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.

  6. Heavenly Father You said “ … those that serve You must do so in Spirit and in Truth …”
    Help us to understand that if we are to be fed it has to be seen first with our spiritual eyes …open them o Lord ! You multiplied 5 loaves and 2 fish not physically but spiritually … you did it every where you went here.
    Open our eyes loving father and let’s behold Your mysterious provisions .. in Jesus name I pray amen.

  7. Yes Lord, enlighten my spirit and put your light on my eyes that my whole body is filled with your light and I can see. For your Glory will be revealed. Thank you. Blessings, Shalom and Agape 👀🙏🏽❤️📖🙏🙌🏽
