DIVINE PERSPECTIVE- Choosing to See through the Eyes of Heaven

October 13, 2014


“For with You is the fountain of life; In Your life we see light.” – Psalms 36:9

Each day brings a new choice. New decisions to make. It doesn’t matter what choices were made yesterday or the day before. Each day brings new choices and new opportunities to walk in the light of Christ. Each day also brings opportunity to walk in the lies of darkness. No one can walk in the light and the darkness at the same time. A choice must be made each day as to who we will serve. Even if there has been wrong choices and wrong perspectives for weeks, months or years of wrong choices there is opportunity to make things right before the Lord, to repent and to live with right perspective each new day. Of course, there may be consequences to deal with due to past wrong choices (and many times there are consequences to face because every choice is taking us somewhere) but the day that there is true repentance from the heart is the day that the ‘ship’ of life can begin to turn from shipwreck to the glorious vessel of the Lord.
In making the daily choice to follow Christ, I open myself to all the benefits of heaven which includes the thoughts of Heaven. The directives of Heaven are now open and clear to me. I have found that when I allow fears and anxieties to direct me I am then “blocked” in my revelations from Jesus. It is during these times that it is the most difficult to discern His voice from other voices. This can be dangerous in the life of the Believer as we are only as good as our ability to hear and follow Jesus. All of us are constantly bombarded with opportunities to walk in worry and anxiety. Whether it be the latest news cast report, daily work stress, the latest family issue brewing at home or more serious circumstances, we all have to choose to walk in the peace and directives of Heaven. There will be times this will involve a fight. (Matt.11:12)
When I choose to walk in peace by putting to death the fears that constantly want to rule me I am then able to hear and see more clearly. I believe this is true to all of us. We all must make a daily choice to walk in the perspective that Jesus died to provide for us. In not making a conscious choice to walk in the perspective of Heaven the choice to walk outside of His peace that passes all understanding is made for us. There is no neutral place in the spirit realm. The cares of this life will make the choice for you if you don’t make quality time with Jesus a priority on a daily basis. He provides directives and guidance for each day through the Holy Spirit. Each day we miss our appointment with Him is a day lived out in wrong perspective and a missed opportunity to walk in His peace. Choosing to live each day looking through the lens of heaven opens up our understanding. We are able to understand things in life that may have been a mystery before thus making us better employees, friends, parents and spouses. (Joshua 24:15)
“May the perspective of Heaven be yours in abundance as Jesus opens your eyes to see all He has for you each day.” Amen.
