I think it’s obvious that there are realms of the spirit that we can’t see, or even know about. However, I think that for those who press in, there is access. Jesus said, Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! (Jhn 4:35)
He’s saying, if you will look with your spirit at what is right in front of you, you’ll see what I’m talking about. When we allow the Holy Spirit to give us understanding, we begin to see things that we were blind to before. Things right in front of us.
Lift up your eyes. I think it’s interesting that when Jesus prayed, He didn’t bow His head and close His eyes. He looked up to heaven. (Mark 6:41) When you look to God, He shows you the things that you won’t see until you make that effort.
Think about the realms of the spirit that could be open to you if you looked up to heaven. How would that effect your life or your ministry? Instead of working blind, you could see the leading of God and know what to do. It’s time to lift up your eyes and see what’s going on.
