See What God Sees
What do you see around you? How do you see your circumstances? Are you looking at things through God's eyes? You can only see what God sees if you are walking in the Spirit.
The Bible states that "therefore we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith and not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:6-8)
Christians who walk in the spirit should see what God sees.
In 2 Kings 6: 8-22, The king of Syria planned to attack Israel, but the prophet Elisha who lived in Dothan kept revealing his war tactics to the king of Israel. To stop Elisha from revealing his warfare plans, "he sent horses and chariots and a strong force there. They went by night and surrounded the city" (2 Kings 6: 14)
When Gehazi, Elisha’s servant woke up early in the morning, he saw they were surrounded by the Syrian army with horses and chariots. He became terrified and turned to his master to make a decision what to do. He saw with his physical eyes his difficult situation and had no idea how he was going to escape being captured.
Elisha saw something different. While Gehazi saw the king of Syria's army, Elisha saw God's army protecting them. "So he answered, do not fear. For those who are with us are more than those who are with them. 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" (2 Kings 6: 17).
Fear and anxiety numb the brain. When panic takes over, we cannot think clearly and make sensible decisions. When we walk in the spirit, we see what God sees. When we walk by faith, we take control of our situation because we are led by the Spirit of God. Elisha took control of his situation without panicking. He prayed for the Syrian army to become blind, and he led them into Samaria, to the king of Israel who fed them and sent them on their way. "So, he prepared a great feast for them, and after they ate and drank, he sent them away, and went to their master. So, the Syrian raiders came no more into the land of Israel" (2 Kings 6:23).
When we see how God see things, we will start to understand why he does things. We will see how he wants us to take control of any difficult situation and problems we encounter. We are overcomers only if we walk by faith and not by sight.
