Scripture Reading: Act 9:11-12 And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight.
Reflections: The gift of vision is a divine communication channel God uses to provide information and directives to his children. Although it functions similarly to natural eyesight, it doesn’t rely on one’s physical eyes. This supernatural revelatory gift is under God’s control, and one can’t manipulate its use. The story of Saul illustrates the power of visions. When he was struck by blindness on his way to Damascus, Saul received a vision that showed him how his sight would be restored by a man named Ananias, who would usher him into his ministry. Shortly after, this vision came to fruition when Ananias arrived and laid hands on him. Interestingly, God also directed Ananias through a vision to visit Saul. Like Saul and Ananias, God can grant you visions to help you access critical information.
Prayer: Dear Lord, let my eyes see beyond the natural with the gift of visions.
Confession: I see beyond the natural.
