Genesis 13:14 The Lord said to Abram, after Lot had left him, “Now lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are standing, northward and southward and eastward and westward; 15 for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your descendants forever.
It’s impossible for a man to become what he has no vision for. Prior to the departure of Lot, scripture wad clear that Lot chose the party of the land which looked more prosperous and left the unproductive land to Abraham.
Reading verse 14 and 15 above the instructions God gave Abraham. We see a pattern, a spiritual principle. You see first then you posses. It’s consistent with scripture that whenever God wants to do something or make something happen, he first inspires a vision in your spirit, so you can see it. Once you see it, and relentlessly maintain your sight of that vision by faith you create the spiritual condition to make that reality happen.
Now that’s why we have been given scripture, it’s a tool to help develop our spiritual sight, to see with the eyes of God. Because of its importance The Apostle Paul prayed constantly for the church to this regard.
Ephesians 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; 17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
Paul knew how important this was hence it was a constant part of his prayers. He knew we could never reach our best in God without the ability of our spirit sight.
We are spiritual beign living in Mortal bodies hence the spiritual supersedes the natural. If you are to make an enduring difference start from the Spiritual realm. We all know how the story of Lot ended, he walked by what he saw physically and ended up running from Sodom with only the clothes on his body even lost his wife in the process.
God also had to apply this principle to bring the earth to be, God saw that it was needful to recreate the earth when I was without form and void hence his spirit hovered above the face of the deep. This period the Spirit used in hovering and contemplating over the earth it became evident when God began to speak, God was speaking out of what he saw in his spirit and brought it out as a physical reality now that’s exactly how we were created also, we see, we take possession of it, the we speak it till it becomes real and tangible.
Spiritual sight is very important. It’s is fundamental. See where God is taking you to. Believe it confess it. And it will become your reality. Remain a blessing.
