IMPROVING YOUR SPIRITUAL PERCEPTION

“If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.” Proverbs 29:18 MSG

“When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh no, my lord! What shall we do?” the servant asked. “Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.” And Elisha prayed, “Open his eyes, Lord, so that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.” 2 Kings 6:15-17 NIV

GOD WANTS TO OPEN YOUR EYES TO SEE.

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in His holy people, and His incomparably great power for us who believe.” Ephesians 1:18-19 NIV

1)    THE HOPE OF YOUR CALLING

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Then said I, “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.” But the LORD said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ for you shall go to all to whom I send you, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD. Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.”” Jeremiah 1:5-9 NKJV

“Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”” Jeremiah 1:11-12 NKJV

“Then the LORD answered me and said, “Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.”” Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV

2)    THE RICHNESS OF YOUR GIFTING

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” 1 Peter 4:10 NLT

“A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.” 1 Corinthians 12:7 NLT

3)    THAT YOU ARE EMPOWERED

“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.” Ephesians 3:20 NIV

4)    THAT YOU ARE NEEDED

“During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.”” Acts 16:9 NIV

“So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven.” Acts 26:19 NIV
