SEE THINGS THE WAY GOD SEES THEM - 2
And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, Lord, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the Lord opened their eyes, and they saw….
2 KINGS 6:20
All the church saw Saul as a murderer but Jesus saw him as a New Testament writer. Others said, why do you choose a murderer? ... Because they couldn’t see what Jesus saw. That is why you always have to pray and ask God to help you see things the way He sees them.
I have fasted and gone to preach, and the purpose of my fast was for God to anoint me with power and when I went, the meeting was dry; the Holy Ghost did show up. After fasting for fourteen days, nothing happened. And so, I began wondering, and the Lord told me: "Your fasting cannot bribe me to use you". There is nothing wrong with fasting, but God is saying that don't let it be in your mind that you can use your fasting to bribe Him to use you.
The way you see things can affect you because you can even think that you can use fasting to bribe God.
One day, I heard an evangelist during a programme say that he had not been able to fast for even three days, but God was using him so mightily during the programme. This shows that God will not use you because you fast. Fasting brings the body under subjection and tunes your mind to align with God. God uses us to do His works because of His grace and mercy. That is why God does not call orators; the fact that you can speak fluently does not mean that God must necessarily use you.
• Pray and say, Lord! Help me see things the way you see them in Jesus’ Name.
• The way you see things affects the way you define them.
