THE ART OF SEEING

 “…WHAT SEEST THOU?” JEREMIAH 1:11, 

There are five senses in the human body for; seeing, feeling, smelling, tasting, and hearing. Of all these, the senses of hearing and seeing, stand out. But the most of all is the sense of SIGHT – the art of seeing.

God takes our vision personal. So much so that in Jeremiah 1:11 He asked Jeremiah this important question, “What do you SEE?” In the quest of finding a way to succeed and live a happy and prosperous life, the mission of our vision cannot be undermined.

Even the bible agrees to this truth; you are what you think. However, the much of what we think about in life is a product of the much we see in our lives. What we see therefore plays a major role in a bid to succeed.

“…LIFT UP NOW THINE EYES…” GENESIS 13:14
It is sometimes burdensome to know how much potentials we possess inside of us and yet cannot find ways of using it, or more so, using it in ways unsuitable for it. In the verse of scripture above, God called Abraham and told him to “lift up now” his eyes. Notice that He did not says “see”. But God said “lift up”. Often times we tend to look down on things. We approach issues with negative or wrong perceptions. But when we look up, we go up. When we look on, we go on.

“…THE LAND WHICH THOU SEEST…” GENESIS 13:15
In the following chapter, God inspires Abraham to broaden his horizon. God did not say, “for all the land which you go to, or work on” but instead, He said, “for all the land which thou seest…” this means you can achieve only AS FAR as your eyes can see.

THE MIND’S EYE
You are able to achieve anything, only if you can first see it. However, so many people have resorted seeing only with their physical eyes. And that has necessitated their inability to achieve more than mediocrity. There is what is called the mind’s eye. Just as there is an inner voice in your spirit telling you what to do per time, so there is an inner eye showing you what you need to see per time – the right vision for the right step. Every great man that has walked the face of this earth, succeeded only on the things their minds’ eyes saw. Someone said, “You may never get to anywhere until your mind gets there first.”

“SEE WELL”
You are not able to achieve all you want until you begin to see. But you must see well! A blurry vision is as good as blindness. In Matthew 8:24, there is an account of a man healed by Jesus. When he was asked if he could see, his response was; “I see men as trees, walking.” It is very possible to look at a particular thing and mistake it for something else. A lot of people are seeing their opportunities as oppositions, their breakthroughs as break outs, their enemies as friends, and friends as enemies, etc. – you sure need a second touch from Jesus that should make you see “every man clearly.”


 “AND GOD SAW THE LIGHT” GENESIS 1:3
Finally, Jeremiah replied, “I see…” The man, after being restored by Jesus, saw. Even the bible records that God saw the light, which He made that it was good.

I implore you from today to start seeing things in your mind. Ignore the day to day hardship. Forget the turmoil in the environment. And see what you want to achieve; what you need. See your future, your destiny, your possibilities, your financial comfort, your wife, your children, your happy life, your success, etc. and I can assure you;
“AS FAR AS YOUR EYES CAN SEE, YOUR LIFE WILL MANIFEST.

NOW, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
