Seeing Through Kingdom Glasses

This is a season for seeing things with a new perspective. It is important how we look at what is happening in our lives and in the world. Circumstances are changing so quickly which can cause our vision to become blurred and hard to focus. Maybe it is time for new eyeglasses. The wrong eyeglasses can distort what is seen. Our eyeglasses were right for a season in our life but now new eyeglasses are needed for this season.

"Sight is the sum of the light receptive and integrative capacity of the eye including best vision, color vision, night vision, depth vision, field of vision and the ability to track objects in motion." Dr. Hamid Sajjadi. When our seeing is not correct even our lives are affected. Correct sight is essential for the way we live our lives and perceive what is going on around us.

Best vision is obtained when we see with 20/20 vision. This is a term used to express normal visual clarity and sharpness of vision measured at a distance of 20 feet. If you have 20/20 vision, you can see clearly at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance.  God wants us to see spiritually with 20/20 vision so that we can see with clarity and sharpness. 

Do a self-examination of your eyes and ask the Lord to reveal anything that might be blurring your vision. Do this on a regular basis because spiritual vision is so crucial to seeing what God is doing in the Earth at this time. Be sure that you are wearing the correct frames and lenses. You may need to update your frames to be able to contain your new lenses.


The frame (framework), or world-view of how we see what is happening on planet Earth cannot be out-of-date. You may require an update. Not only do we see Scripture being fulfilled before our very eyes but there is also the Kingdom of God with God's purposes being manifested in the nations. If we only "see" this with our "church" eyeglasses our perspective will be limited. That is why we need to update our frames so that we also see beyond the obvious and perceive God's kingdom being established in the Earth (nations). Revelation 11:15 The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever. This is a season for seeing things differently.
