“Tunnel vision is not the same as being focused.”
I have talked to many people over the years of my life. When listening to them I hear what they have to say and inside I know they have blinders on.
Blinders are a piece of equipment they would put on a horse to keep them from getting distracted or see the things in their peripheral vision or what they see to their left and right.
When the spiritual blinders are on a person all they see is what is before them and do not see the greater picture:
2Ki 6:15 Now when the attendant of the man of God had risen early and gone out, behold, an army with horses and chariots was circling the city. And his servant said to him, “Alas, my master! What shall we do?”
2Ki 6:16 So he answered, “Do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
2Ki 6:17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” And the LORD opened the servant’s eyes and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
So many times we are like this servant of Elisha’s, we just see the problem before us. We do not see what help is before us in the spirit realm.
You see when the eyes of our understanding have not been enlightened all we see is the problem before us and when we have blinders on we end up being overcome by the problems of life.
But when the eyes of our understanding have been enlightened we can see the God that supplies all of our needs according to His riches in Glory through Christ Jesus.
When we see clearly we see that God will never leave us or forsake us. We see greater is He that is within us than he that is in this world.
We see that God’s word will never come back void. We see that God is not a man that He should lie, or the son of man that he should change His mind, if He spoke it, He shall surely do it !!!
You see the Bible says where there is no vision His people perish. But thank God the Bible says that God will make the blind to see and the deaf to hear.
You may be like Israel today. You might have recently had a great victory like Israel did when they crossed the Red Sea and they saw their enemies dead bodies wash up to the shore line.
Only to find yourself three days later complaining because you have lost sight of the promises of God in His Bible that He has given to you.
Ask God to take the blinders off today. Ask Him to let you see into the spirit realm of things and know today that there are more for you than are against you today.
God told Moses to get up off his knees, stop praying and lift up his staff and part the Red Sea. God is telling us today to lift up our staff of faith and God will do the rest, He will part the problem before us and we will safely go over to the other side where God wants us to be.
God bless you, hope your vision improves today!!!!
