And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so 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.
II Kings 6:13-17
This a great Biblical story. The King of Aram was at war with Israel and every time they made a military move, God told Elisha, who told the Israelites. It was so bad that the King of Aram thought he had a spy in their midst. But the officers told the King, “No, Elisha is telling the Israelites our plans.” So the King was angry and asked his armies to go get Elisha. Elisha’s servant saw the army approaching on horses and chariots, surrounding their camp and he was scared to death. But Elisha saw a heavenly reality that made all the difference in the world. He was at peace and asked God to give the servant the same perspective. The Lord opened the servant’s eyes to the heavenly reality of their situation. Can you imagine how he must have felt? It would be like a person who was raised in the deep jungle seeing a modern city for the first time. Telephones, videos, automobiles, restaurants, airplanes. How different the two worlds are. Yet, what do we know of heaven? What do we know of God’s power available to us? What do we know of His infinite riches and power toward us who believe? It made all the difference when the servant saw the heavenly resources there on his behalf. Would it make a difference in your day today if you knew more about the Heavenly reality waiting to bust in on yours? I pray for you what Elisha prayed, “May God open your eyes so you may see.”
Father, I confess, I spend much of my time blind to Your presence. Blind to Your power. Blind to Your heavenly reality all around me. Help me Lord, to see all of Your vast love and resources You have available for me today. In Jesus’ name.
