God Will Open Your Eyes and Heart

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.”

We are limited by our humanity and God did this on purpose. God never wanted us to depend on ourselves and our own devices. He wanted us to depend on him. We need to realize that we have limited vision. We need to ask God on a regular basis to open our eyes and heart to his vision. God’s vision is unlimited and is not bound by us, the people around us, our circumstances and more. We serve a risen savior who has never lost and cannot be challenged or defeated. We need to remember our birthright as children of God.

Today’s scripture is about the prophet Elisha and his servant. They were being pursued by an enemy in battle. They were surrounded with no apparent way of escape. The servant expressed his fear and Elisha prayed. He prayed for God to open the servant’s eyes. God answered Elisha’s prayer and the servant saw the enemy was outnumbered by God’s army. God eventually blinded the enemy and delivered the enemy into Elisha’s hands.

This story is a reminder of many things. There is nothing wrong with doubt and unbelief if you do not stay in that posture. Elisha’s servant was honest. Since he was honest, Elisha did the best thing we can do in any situation which to pray. God is available to us anytime of the day. We need to call on his name not just when we are in trouble but on a daily and ongoing basis. We must prepare for God’s answer. When God answers, us it is always in his timing and will exceed our expectations. God will give us the victory in due season if we trust him.

So, what is the enemy or enemies in your life surrounding you? Are you dealing with someone or something that appears ready to take you out or have you give up? I want to encourage us to pray and ask God to open our eyes and hearts. God will always exceed our expectations. Take a few moments to ask God to open your heart and eyes. Trust him for his answer and know that he loves you too much to abandon you.
