Our perspective changes everything. God has a different perspective of our circumstances than we do. With God there is always more going on in the Spirit realm than meets the natural eye. We need a perspective shift in our prayer lives because once our perspective shifts we notice the incredible things that are happening. We must remove barriers, declare God’s truth and ask the Lord to open our eyes.
“Then Elisha prayed, ‘O LORD open his eyes and let him see?’ The LORD opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.”
2 KINGS 6:17(NLT)
You can look at a problem from the bottom, from halfway up, or from the top (God’s
perspective). How can prayer help you shift your perspective?
Share a time when God delivered to you in the supernatural what seemed
impossible in the natural.
Are fear, doubt, or anxiety keeping you from seeing things from God’s perspective?
Discuss some ways to overcome these barriers, such as speaking truth from the Bible over yourself.
Talk about a situation that you did not see from God’s perspective until he opened
your eyes to let you see the problem or the person the way He sees them.
Think about those areas that loom large like a mountain blocking your path. Ask God to give you His perspective about that situation and to open your eyes to His truth for you.
This week, begin to involve God in your daily life. Whether it is a conversation with a family member or a workplace activity, give God a place in everything you do so that you may become more aware of His presence and His voice.
