DAILY DEVO...look and see

In today's Scripture reading we find the servant of Elisha looking but not seeing...

(2 Kings 6:17) "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."

His servant saw the army surrounding their town, but he failed to see the angels that God had placed all around. He was walking in spiritual blindness.

We do the same thing. 

We are looking, but we only see things thru our own eyes; in our own strength. Instead of seeing God's power, we see our weakness. Instead of seeing deliverance, we only see defeat. 

Elisha's prayer is a prayer for each of us today, that we too,  could have our eyes open. Instead of complacency, God's children need to walk in confidence...confidence that God is with us thru every battle and every storm. 

How much more courageous could you be in your battle if you could see the victory instead of seeing yourself as the victim? When you look around; don't just look, open your eyes so that you can see!


TODAY'S SCRIPTURE READING: 2 Kings 5:1-6:23, Acts 7:1-16, Psalm 101
