Don’t Walk Away

Raise Your Vision

14th December 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 8-23


“And when they came down to him, 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)

In our Focal Scripture, Elisha prayed to God to smite the host of the Syrian army with blindness. Elisha’s eyes were open to see the chariots and horses of fire that were a part of heaven’s army, he had vision on a higher level than the enemies that came against him, and he ordered that the vision of his enemies be taken away. His vision was higher, and the vision of his enemies became victims to his own higher level of vision.

Friend, when you rise in the level of your vision, you will make other men victims of your own vision. When you rise higher in your spiritual insight, you will rule over men with no spiritual insight. When you rise higher in your revelational knowledge of God, you will prevail over those whose eyes are not open to see what God has to show. When you rise higher in your divine understanding, you will prevail over men without divine understanding and divine knowledge.

Those men who came against Elisha didn’t necessarily have bad eye sight. They just showed up before a man whose vision was beyond the physical, and they lost their own physical vision. They encountered a man who had a higher vision, and his vision consumed theirs. If you fail to rise above your current level of vision, knowledge, understanding, exposure, wisdom, etc, you will become a victim of those who have risen.

As the year winds down, commit yourself to growing in knowledge, wisdom, insight, vision, divine revelation, etc. Don’t be content if you cannot see beyond the physical. Don’t settle for a life without divine revelation. Don’t accept a life without a peep into the future. Don’t accept a life of spiritual blindness. Don’t accept to live like one without eyes to see.

Remember, it’s either you raise your vision, or you become a victim of those who have raised theirs. Raise your vision. Grow your vision.


I raise my vision; I won’t be a victim of another man’s vision, in Jesus’ name!
