And He said to them, “To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables, so that
‘Seeing they may see and not perceive, And hearing they may hear and not understand;
In life many people see but few perceive. As believers it has been given to us to perceive what the carnal man cannot.
We are spiritual people. We don’t just see with our eyes; we see with our minds. A person who only sees with his natural eyes is always behind schedule! The Word tells us that the Holy Spirit has been give to us, to show us things to come. We are born to be able to see around the corner.
The more we are aware of our new identity in Him, the more the blindness of the devil’s lies comes off our minds. The more we look at the Word of God instead of the circumstances around us to determine the parameters of our life, the more our minds are quickened to perceive.
If we are willing to plant ourselves in a place where we can hear the Word preached under the anointing, and we are ready to receive that Word into our lives, we won’t need to see Jesus in the flesh, He will be revealed to us in the Word, and that revelation will bring the clarity we need.
Opportunity is hidden in plain view. What appears to be only a crisis, contains an open door of opportunity.
In fact everything you need to go to the next level in your life is right in your locality. You don’t need to travel the world looking for your next step, God always plants the believer by rivers of provision according to Psalm 1:3. You just need to perceive it.
Ask God today, “Give me the ability to perceive the people you have sent to my life to help me fulfill my purpose. Cause the eyes of my understanding to be enlightened to see your divine provision, the doors that are open and the favor that you have set up for me. Give me the grace to understand what my next step is and to see into my future”
Amen. Peace be with you.
