“…blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.” (Mark 10: 46).
Our Focal Scripture described blind Bartimaeus as a beggar. Because he was blind, he may never have known if he ever got enough alms, he may never have known if miscreants stole from his plate, and he would never have known if he got enough to actually leave the highway; because he couldn’t see, no matter how much alms he got, his situation did not change.
Friend, it’s not about what you have been given or what has been taken from you; it’s all about vision. If you can’t see, opportunities will pass by you and you won’t even notice; if your eyes are not open to see, destiny helpers will come your way and you will treat them like commoners; if your eyes are not open to see, people will steal from you, and you wouldn’t know.
If only you can see, you would know when to disconnect from relationships/circles that are poised to reduce your destiny. If only you can see, you would know when the times and seasons of your life are changing, and you would be prompt in making necessary changes. If only you can see, you would know when the enemy is lurking around your destiny, family, children, career, business, etc.
You were created in the image of a God whose eyes see globally. Don’t see locally; see globally. Ask God to open your eyes to see more. Ask God to keep your spiritual eyes open; ask God to keep your eyes open to opportunities; ask God to keep your eyes open to see the hour of your visitation.
If you can’t see, what you are given or not given won’t matter.
Ephesians 1: 18 says: “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,”
Declare With Me: My eyes are open to see what God is showing me, in Jesus’ name!
