Open Our Eyes

2 Kings 6:17 NKJ
17 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.

What we see with our physical eyes is not all that's happening. Spiritual forces are active around us. Unless God "opens our eyes" we're in the dark to what's really happening. Of course, it shouldn't be necessary for us to "see" into the spirit realm to believe what God has said, such as that His angels would keep charge of us always to protect us.

Acts 26:18 NKJ
18 'to open their eyes and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.'

When God told Paul what his calling was, the first step mentioned was "to open their eyes . . . that they may receive."

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says, one of the causes of us not getting our healing is our eyes.

Matthew 13 NIV
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

For us to receive all that God has provided for us, we must also have "our eyes opened." Our prayer needs to be that of the Psalmist.

Psalm 119:18 NKJ
18 Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law.

SAY THIS: Open my eyes O Lord, give me understanding and insight, and healing to my body, mind and spirit.

The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
