“…Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee,
with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of
Elisha.” (2 Kings 6: 18)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
After Elisha saw the horses and chariots of fire that came from heaven, he
prayed that God should smite the Syrians with blindness. Elisha’s vision
was elevated to see what human eyes could not see, and he prayed to God to
take away the vision of the Syrians. Elisha’s vision was higher, and he
took away the vision of the Syrians.
Friend, the higher your vision, the more you will dominate over others.
When you advance in your vision and purpose in life, God will empower you
to outclass people who have no vision and purpose for their lives. When you
have uncommon ideas that others are not thinking about, you will overtake
and command them in destiny.
The more you see, know and understand more than others, the more you will
take their positions and opportunities from them. When your vision in your
career/business is higher than that of your contemporaries and rivals, you
will take vantage positions that will put others out of business.
Expand your vision; increase your understanding and vision for your career,
business, ministry, etc. Raise the bar in the matter of vision. Ask God to
open your eyes to see what others around you cannot see. Ask God to inspire
you to see ideas and opportunities that others can’t see.
Elisha’s supernatural vision which the Syrian forces didn’t have, became
his advantage. What you know that others don’t know will keep you ahead.
The key to your next level lies in a bigger vision.
Pray With Me: Lord, increase my vision; empower me to see what others
cannot see, in Jesus’ name!
