Remember, try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward. ~ Charlotte Bronte
Scripture:For we walk by
faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
Saints, how many
of you wear glasses or contacts? I do. If you are anything like me, I have from
time to time lost or broken my glasses. When this happens, I have a hard time
seeing things clearly.
Today I want to talk to you about putting on your
spiritual glasses. You see, sometimes when we look at life we see things as they
appear to be. We may see insurmountable mountains. We may see unconquerable
circumstances. We may not see a way out of bondage.
Putting on your
spiritual glasses is a way of looking at things through the eyes of Jesus. It is
a way of allowing God to take over and make a way out of no way. It is a way of
seeing things more clearly. Seeing things not in the natural, but in the
Putting on your spiritual glasses allows you to let go and
let God lead the way. Putting on your spiritual glasses blinds you to the things
of this world and it opens up a whole new view for you to see. God’s way. God’s
world. Gods plan for you.
Saints, today pick up those glasses, put them
on and learn a whole new way of looking at things. Trust in the Lord and know
that he will lead you down the right path.
Lord, I once was blind but now I see.
We come today as the blind did in the days of old, asking Lord, that You would
restore our sight. Help us Lord to find the path that You have chosen for us.
Help us Lord, to develop greater faith. Help us Lord, to see the world through
the eyes of Jesus. Father, we come surrendering our lives to You. Help us to
learn to lean on You. Help us Lord to learn that it’s not always, about what we
see but truly, about what You are teaching us. Teach us Lord to lean upon You
and to depend upon You and not the things of this world. Father, we ask that You
would keep all of Your saints safe and secure this day. Continue to be with our
troops during the time of tribulation. Bless us Lord. Keep us Lord. Restore our
sight once again. So that we may lift our eyes towards heaven and see Your
divine vision for us. Father, we come praising and uplifting Your name once
again. As we ask and pray this and all things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
