Change Your Vision


“You’re thinking too small!” Thats what the Lord spoke to me as I was driving home. I asked for a point of reference and He directed me to look around me. So I looked all around me and again I heard, “You’re thinking too small!” So I asked that He open the eyes of my understanding and help me to see what he was trying to show me. Suddenly I knew it wasn’t what I saw in the natural that he was referring to, it was what I saw in the Spirit realm.

Isaiah 55:8-11 CEV says: “The Lord says: “My thoughts and my ways are not like yours. Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours. Rain and snow fall from the sky. But they don’t return without watering the earth that produces seeds to plant and grain to eat. That’s how it is with my words. They don’t return to me without doing everything I send them to do.”

I need to think like God does and not allow the smallness of my natural view to stunt me from all God has for me. Like Elisha, I need to see the fiery angel chariots on the hills of deliverance rather than the natural enemies that surround me. 

We’ve all heard the term ‘super-size’. Perhaps that’s how we should be thinking, super-sized thoughts. A pastor once said, “Better to shoot for the moon and miss then shoot for nothing at all!” We will only go as far as our thoughts will take us. If we can’t imagine it, it will never happen for us.

It’s time to think like God does so we can do what God has designed for us to do. As long as we think that miracles are beyond us, we will never see them happen. But if we will step out in faith and lay hands on the sick, they will recover for that’s what God said! Step into God’s line of sight and see yourself doing what He said you would do.

Father, I trade my eye sight for yours. I trade my vantage point for yours. You are indeed higher and mightier than anything that I face in the natural. Everything I need is in your Word and I will focus on what is in your realm and not mine. I trade my words for your Words, for they are life and health to me. Others may not understand me, but I seek to please you by becoming more and more like you each day. You’ve called me to come up higher, to leave the world behind, so I come. Into your arms, I come. Into your Word, I come. Into your deep and everlasting love, I come. In your grace I will make my home. Make me more like you.
