“And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever” (Genesis 13:14-15).
When God told Abraham to “Lift up his eyes and look,” He wasn’t referring to his physical eyes, but to the eyes of his spirit. He wanted the man to look into the realm of the spirit and see the realities of God’s Kingdom. That’s the realm where seeming impossible situations in this earthly realm become possible. However, the only way to see into this realm is through prayer and study of the Word.
The Word of God is “Light” (1 John 1:7); when you start walking in the light of God’s Word, the realm of the spirit will come alive to you, and you’ll start functioning from that realm, just like your heavenly Father. I remember the story of a certain woman and her six year-old daughter, who both had polio and were brought to a healing meeting with a certain minister. After a session of prayers for the sick, the six year old girl got healed immediately, but her mother wasn’t and wished she had been healed like her daughter.
About four years later, after listening to some tapes by the same minister on healing, she got healed! How? As she listened to the Word of God, she was able to see into the realm of the spirit and saw that there was no sickness or diseases in her body! Soon as she got a hold of that picture, nothing could stop her healing from manifesting in the physical. That’s living from inside out! You need to see that miracle you desire first by the eyes of your spirit.
You can live free of sickness, poverty, failure, and suffering if you’d only turn the light of God’s Word on your life. That way, you’ll see the real you, and the realities of the glorious, prosperous and successful life God has called you to.
Dear Father, thank you for your Word, which is a light unto my path, and a lamp unto my feet. As I study your Word today, let the eyes of my understanding be flooded with light, that I may see, understand and take advantage of all you’ve prepared for me in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
