Open your eyes...

Devotional:


Do you truly believe that all things will work together for your good? Sometimes, I remember sitting back thinking to myself, “Oh God, things won’t get any better than this.” In those moments, my heart was full of so much depression and despair. It was hard to see things as working together, because I could only see how things were working against me. Maybe some of you find yourself in this same place right now. No matter how hard you try, you can’t see past the failures, the disappointments and the struggles of the first eight months of this year. It’s as if, the bad has a chokehold on your perspective.


When Elisha’s servant saw the envoy of the Armean army coming up against them, he couldn’t see the good in that situation. Let’s be real, how many of us would? Yet, Elisha’s supernatural sight caused him to say, “Don’t be afraid." “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” (2 Kings 6:16 NIV) Knowing the fear of his servant, he then said, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” (1 Kings 6:17 NIV) In that moment, the servant saw there was nothing to be afraid of.


As we enter into this ninth month of the year, there needs to be a shift in your perspective NOW. Pray this prayer below, and may you see how God has already caused all things to work together for your good.

Prayer:


When praying you must believe in the words you speak, I recommend setting the atmosphere by listening to the songs meditation above, or however you do so. This prayer works, but you must attach your faith along with it. It is written that if we believe that whatever we ask for according to God’s will is ours, then we shall receive it. Allow your faith to rise today.

Dear Lord our Heavenly Father,

We lift your name on high. We sing your praises this morning because you truly are good and worthy to be praised. God, there’s none like you. And quite honestly, who and where would we be without you. Our very breath comes from the essence of you, thank you O Lord for breathing life into us today. Thank you O God for filling us with the strength to make it through another day. Thank you O God, for inspiring us with your Word, to seek you more and more. Transform our minds. We come before your mighty throne of grace with hearts of repentance. Father forgive us according to 1 John 1:9, as we confess our sins before you. You have done so many mighty and great things for us already this year, that unfortunately, we haven’t had the eyes to see. Have mercy on us O Lord, we request of thee. Give us eyes to see, that all things are working together for our good. Just as you did with Elisha’s servant, open our eyes to see the many ways that you are already working behind the scenes. Your Word says in Job 22:28, that whatsoever we decree shall be established.


I decree that we shall have eyes to see your supernatural power at work in our finances.

I decree that we shall have eyes to see your supernatural power at work in our relationships.

I decree that we shall have eyes to see your supernatural power at work in our work environments.

I decree that we shall have eyes to see your supernatural power at work in our prayers.

I decree that we shall have eyes to see your supernatural power at work in our health.


We thank you O Lord for always guiding and protecting us. You truly are the Good Shepherd. Today O Lord, let us see how you’ve already worked the first 8 months of this year together for our good.


In Jesus Name we pray,

Amen
