Mom, You Need New Eyes

Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!” 2 Kings 16:17a

According to my seven-year-old, I need new eyes. I giggled inside when Analiah told me this while at the library the other day. Earlier this year I had my contact exam. The doctor said my eyes are doing great. So why did Analiah think I needed new eyes?

New Eyes

We were in the DVD section of the library when Analiah showed me an Adventure in Odyssey DVD. I commented, “I didn’t know they had those.” Analiah’s reply was “You just need new eyes” followed by “If you eat a lot of carrots, you will have new eyes.” Analiah’s logic was comical but it also really got me thinking about new eyes. But, not the physical ones because I need new spiritual eyes.

Elisha’s Servant

All too often, I can be like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6:15-18.  He was filled with a lot of fear and rightfully so. In verse 15, we read he went outside and saw troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. The servant cried out to Elisha “What will we do now?” Elisha encouraged him to not be afraid because Elisha had God’s eyes for the situation.

In our key verse for today, Elisha prayed and asked God to open his servant’s eyes and let him see. God answered Elisha’s prayer and his servant was able to see God’s power in a powerful way.

Carrots

We all need new spiritual eyes. Like Analiah suggested, we could eat a lot of carrots to get new eyes. Or we could spend time in prayer and in the bible. We can pray and ask God to open our eyes to see Him at work. Also, spending time in the Word daily helps us to get new spiritual eyes. As we read the Bible, we get to know God’s heart more and understand His ways.

God Vision

How is your God vision today? Are you seeing Him clearly at work? Maybe like me, you need to ask God to open your eyes. As we spend time in the Bible and prayer, God will open our eyes. He is at work all around us. Let’s keep looking!

Heavenly Father, please open my eyes to see You at work. I don’t want to miss a single thing. Thank You for Your word and the gift of prayer. Please help me to use both to draw even closer to You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

New Eyes
