Devotion Day 2 – World Through Word

” See the world through my Word. Look through my lens. Change your perspective ” says the Lord

How hard is it to search for a lost something in the dark ? Darkness diminishes the hope of finding the lost item and eventually leads you to quit searching. When there is darkness surrounding you, there is no clarity of vision . Darkness deceives you into believing that the situation is far worse than you imagined

The world could be viewed as a place full of dark spots where if we loose our vision, we could easily get lost. We could sway from the God given purpose for our life and eventually loose perspective of His vision for us. Darkness then takes control of our thoughts and puts us in the perfect rut leading us into the belief that there is no way out of it

The Bible gives us the perfect instruction to protect ourselves from the World. To look at the world through the lens of the WORD.

Psalm 119: 130 The unfolding of Your Words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple

I love Numbers 13 . When Moses sent the spies to Canaan to see what it was like before the Israelites entered the land, all that the spies could see was the ‘giant’ men and the ‘walled city’ . They knew it was a land flowing with milk and honey but their fearful eyes could not see beyond the obstacles. They looked and perceived themselves as ‘grasshoppers’ so small in comparison to those ‘ giant’ men they saw in the land of Canaan. On the contrary, Caleb was presented with the same situation but he saw things differently. He knew there was obstacles but he also knew His God was stronger than the obstacles they faced. His perspective to look through the eyes of God made all the difference here.

Today is a heavenly invite for you to overcome the ‘grasshopper’ perspective and look at your situation / yourself through the lens of the Word .. He says ‘ You are the Apple of My eye – Zechariah 2:8 ‘ . Trust in God and overcome . You can overcome any situation with God.

Claim this verse and declare it over your life. You are more than a conqueror.

Romans 8:37-39

37 Yet even in the midst of all these things, we triumph over them all, for God has made us to be more than conquerors, and his demonstrated love is our glorious victory over everything!

38 So now I live with the confidence that there is nothing in the universe with the power to separate us from God’s love. I’m convinced that his love will triumph over death, life’s troubles,[c] fallen angels, or dark rulers in the heavens. There is nothing in our present or future circumstances that can weaken his love. 39 There is no power above us or beneath us—no power that could ever be found in the universe that can distance us from God’s passionate love, which is lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One!

If you are ready to become an overcome through Christ , pray this prayer with me !

Dear Father,

Thank You for speaking to me today. Thank you for understanding my struggles and teaching me a way out of it. As I choose to get rid of my ‘grasshopper’ mentality help me to see things through the eyes of your Word. Teach me strategies to overcome things of this world that are not of You and help me to live out a life that glorifies You.

In Jesus Name I ask and Pray

Amen
