Open Our Eyes Lord!

See The Way God Sees

2 Kings 6:15-17 (NIV)

15 When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked.

16 “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

17 And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

How are your eyes?  What battles are you facing? Are you believing God for a miracle in your life?  Are you praying for a change?  Has your faith been challenged?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions keep reading.

2 Kings 6:15-17 dramatically demonstrates how powerful and awesome God is.  Elisha’s servant was panicking because of what he saw before him – DOOM!  Elisha on the other hand was full of faith and told his servant not to fear.  Why?  Because Elisha’s eyes had been opened by God.  He saw what God saw.  Elisha was seeing through the eyes of God.  He told his servant that those who were with them were more than what the enemy had.  Can you imagine what his servant was thinking?  Elisha prayed and asked God to open his servant’s eyes so that he may see.


The servant saw what Elisha saw!

Have you asked God to open your eyes?  Do you want to see the way God sees things?  Do you really think 2 Kings 6th chapter was placed in the Bible by accident?  I think not.

Stop looking at what you see and ask God to open your eyes.

Pray what Elisha prayed.  “Open my eyes, Lord, so that I may see.”

Be outrageously blessed!

  2. Thank you for this eye opener. I asked God to open my eyes to the trial that I’m enduring and I know now that if he can do it for Elisha back then, that he will do it for me today. Again thanks for this eye opener.
