What are Spiritual Eyes?

The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light (Matt. 6:22 ESV)

Spiritual eyes are the eyes that see spiritual realities. Our physical eyes can perceive material things with the help of light. You can see and read the words of this devotional because your eyes can view the writings with the help of light. Both light and the eyes are essential for the function of sight.

Just as physical eyes can perceive physical realities, spiritual eyes are the eyes that perceive spiritual realities. Angels, for instance, are all around you right now as a believer, but your physical eyes cannot see them because they are out of the realm of the physical. Spiritual eyes are needed to see spiritual realities. One of the most critical problems we are all facing as believers today is that of spiritual blindness which is our inability to see spiritual things which are already there. Some of you reading this devotional might be so anxious and full of fear of the challenges you are dealing with, but those concerns will vanish immediately if your eyes are opened to see the angels around you and God’s provisions and care already made available to you.

You do not see spiritual things with your physical eyes, except when the Lord grants you to see a vision with your physical eyes. Spiritual eyes are in the heart. They see by KNOWING. You see spiritual realities by coming into the knowledge of them. God opens your spiritual eyes by revealing hidden things to you either through prophetic visions or the Word( written or spoken). Jesus said above that your eye is the lamp of your body and will determine what your life will look like.

MEDITATE

What happens to us when our eyes are closed? (That is we do not know spiritual things Hos. 4:6).Declare that “the eyes of my understanding are enlightening by the Holy Spirit through the Word.”

APPLY THE WORD

Are spiritual things real to you or are they still imaginary? Are your spiritual eyes open or are you spiritually blind? Pray and ask the Lord to open your eyes spiritually. If you have not done so, read this devotional on the three types of spiritual eyes.

PRAY

Pray and ask the Lord to open your eyes in understanding and visions( Ps. 118:18, Eph. 1:15-17).

That’s a plus, we need to zoom into the spiritual so we may loose pleasure in things of the world
