The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Ps. 119:130 KJV)
Our physical eyes see physical realities. Spiritual eyes see spiritual realities. One mistake many of us make is to think that spiritual eyes are limited to visual perceptions of visions or dreams. However, visions and dreams are merely one means by which God reveals or makes us KNOW spiritual things. The crucial factor in spiritual eyes is the ability to KNOW things. When God opens your eyes, you know things about Him, the spiritual realm and even people around you. You begin to SEE.
When God opens our spiritual eyes, we start seeing or knowing things, either through visions, dreams or revelations. How does God open our eyes to start seeing beyond the natural? First, He gives us the Holy Spirit.
The coming of the Holy Spirit is the opening of our spiritual eyes to see God, that is, know Him and come into an intimate fellowship with Him. Secondly, the Spirit imparts unto us spiritual gifts, such as the gift of prophecy that opens our eyes to realities beyond the natural mind.
However, the major means by which the Holy Spirit opens the eyes of the believer is directly through His Word. The entrance of His Word gives light and opens the eyes. You will be amazed at how your eyes will open up spiritually by the entrance of God’s Word. Your eyes MUST be opened spiritually for you to enjoy your benefits in Christ.
Please read the verse above again and mutter those words carefully again and again.
APPLY THE WORD
Ephesians 1:15-18 was my cry unto the Lord, and He heard me. God opens our eyes in response to prayer. Let this be a burden in your spirit to have the eyes of your understanding enlightened to come to the knowledge of the Father. Your life will never be the same.
Ask the Father to open your eyes right now to bring you into an intimate knowledge and fellowship with Him.
