Perception

This verse always puts things into perspective for me…

Are you a person that sees the glass as half empty, or have full?

In this passage, Elisha was speaking to the fearful young man, because the Aramean army had surrounded them, in pursuit of Elisha. Yet, Elisha asked God to open the eyes of the young man and show him the actual state of what was going on. Upon this, the young man saw God’s Chariots of Fire surrounding the Aramean army

So many times we can be fearful, worried, or anxious within our circumstances in the ”natural”, that we forget about our Supernatural God, who is for us, not against us

How would you feel if God revealed the angels that surrounded you in your circumstances?

Most of us would feel more confident, but in reality, it should never be about what most of us can see, within our lives, but remembering Who God is

Friends, Elisha’s circumstances didn’t change in the sense that God didn’t remove the Aramean army that surrounded them. Elisha just knew Who he served and understood that we need to trust God beyond our own understanding, because the reality is often very different to what we perceive

Therefore, I want to encourage you this morning, that no matter what you are going through, ask God into your circumstances. Ask God to move for you, and direct your steps, because just like Elisha, the people that are sent to destroy you, could very well be led away by God

We need to realise that the victory will ALWAYS be ours, because God is by our side and we need to also realise that the glass is will ALWAYS be half full, because we are under God’s banner of love

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
