Then he prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” – 2 Kings 6:17 GNB.
Then he prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” The LORD answered his prayer, and Elisha’s servant looked up and saw the hillside covered with horses and chariots of fire all round Elisha, 2 Kings 6:17 GNB. As born-again believers, we now have a birth which comes from God according to John 1:13 NLT and the word of God tells us that God is Spirit, so we are now considered spirit beings.
This has far-reaching implications; it simply means we are now the way God sees us and no longer as we appear in the flesh. This proves true about our reality; we now have to look at our lives in the spirit and what God says about us and no longer what we see with our natural eyes.
This reminds me of the story of Gideon when the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor.” But from reading about Gideon, we know that in the physical Gideon was a fearful man and had little faith. God came to him and called out to him according to his spiritual reality and not the physical fearful man.
Father, open our eyes that we may see ourselves and others the way that you see us as we lay hold of that which Christ Jesus lay hold of us, make us aware of our spiritual reality. Amen!
We are now the way God sees us and no longer as we appear in the flesh
