Open Your Eyes

2 Kings 6:17 says, “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.”

The prophet, Elisha, prayed to God for his servant’s eyes to be open so he could see that the Lord was ready to take on the battle before them. This is my prayer for you today.

Are you overwhelmed with your circumstances? I pray God will open your eyes so you see His hand at work in your situation.

Feeling depressed and defeated? I pray God will open your eyes to His hope and unfailing love.

Are you discouraged? Perhaps bound by sin or unable to forgive yourself or others? I pray God will open your eyes to the healing that He alone makes available to you.

Oh my friends, look up! Lift up your head! Our redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28b). If we will only let God open our eyes.

And there you go!

The Way of Escape

Matthew 6:13b says, “but deliver us from the evil one.”

Jesus alone is the only Deliverer from evil! Write this down on your heart. He is the Way, the Truth and the Life! He’s the Conqueror King! He’s the Resurrection and the Life, and there is no evil in Him!

Though temptation creeps in and Satan entices us to sin, God, our Father, promises a way of escape. He provides a means of rescue through his Son, Jesus.

So today, when things go right or wrong, when you think you can make it on your own, or even if you can no longer make it at all, know this. He will deliver you from whatever temptation comes your way. As James 4:7 reminds us, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

And there you go!
