“And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed forever ” – Genesis 13:14
LIGHT FOR NOW: In this New Year, what you see will determine what you will get.
We are in an era where one is tempted to see all kinds of things, but it is your responsibility to ensure that you see well. What you see is key to what God has in store for you in this New Year. The greatest weapon for access into the treasures and possibilities in God is in your ability to see. You must always ensure that you see something from God’s Word that will give hope. In the service of God, what you see is fundamental to what you can have of Him. Throughout the writings of Paul, you will never see where he prayed for the church or believers to have things. Rather, he always prayed for them to see or know what they already have and to take possession of it. In Ephesians 1:17-18, he says, “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. That 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”.
Apostle Paul was talking about the eyes of the mind, which is beyond the physical eye. This is because the believer sees possibilities from the eyes of his mind and not from the physical eyes. As a believer in Christ, there is a new way of seeing things. As a matter of truth, it also affects the way you see your salvation. It is your responsibility to see things from a new perspective as a new man. Never see the old. See that all things have become new. In this new year, you must consciously drop old habits and develop new ones that are consistent with who you are in Christ. Stop seeing failures and begin to enjoy success. Never see limitations but see all the possibilities that you have in Christ Jesus. In this new year, what you see will determine what you will get.
INSTRUCTION: Stop seeing the old. Embrace the new.
Prayer: Lord, I receive grace to see and embrace the new, in Jesus Name!
QUOTE: What you see determines what you get.
