Our Daily Devotional:
Open Our Eyes
2 Kings 6:17 NIV: And Elisha prayed, "O LORD, open his eyes so he may see." Then the LORD opened the servant´s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
I once saw a man talking with a woman, and another man came and stood between the two and began talking to the woman. This infuriated the first man who was now looking at the back of the second man´s head. The worse part was that the second man seemed completely oblivious to his actions-and it was not the first time. It´s easy to take people for granted, or treat them as though they do not exist. We may not even mean to. But for some reason or another, we, in some fashion, turn our backs to them-paying them no attention-seeing only what we want to. Consider how easy it is to disregard the devil. We know how easy it is to pay no heed to those we can see, how much easier those we cannot? Scripture tells us that, "Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" (1 Pt.5:8). While, with God, we do not need to fear our enemy, we should be ever so careful never to turn our back on him. He is real, and the destruction he brings surrounds us. May God give us eyes to see what we must, and wisdom to act on it.

The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
