2 Kings 6:16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

The king of Aram wanted to capture the prophet Elisha therefore; he surrounded the city where Elisha and his servant were residing. Elisha’s servant saw the army and went back to Elisha afraid asking him, “What shall we do?” A calm Elisha told his servant, there are more with us than with them.

Looking through natural eyes, there were only two of them versus a surrounded city of soldiers. When Elisha asked God to open his servant’s spiritual eyes, the servant was able to see a host of the Lord’s horses and chariots of fire surrounding them.

There are going to be times in our lives where our natural eyes will give us a limited perspective. It will seem like there’s not enough money, it will seem as if there’s no cure for a disease, it will seem as if the situation will never get better. During those times, we have to view life through our spiritual eyes. Our spiritual eyes view life through the lens of faith and our faith is rooted in the Word of God.

When our natural eyes tell us there’s not enough, looking through our spiritual eyes will tell us God will supply all our needs (Phil. 4:19). When our natural eyes tell us our marriage is terrible, our spiritual eyes will tell us it’s blessed because we have what we say (Mark 11:24). When our natural eyes tell us we don’t deserve something because of our past, our spiritual eyes will tell us we’re righteous through Christ as we’re an heir to the promises of God (Rom. 3:22; Eph. 1:3).

Let’s start and continue viewing every part of our lives through our spiritual eyes.
