Insight is defined as the capacity to gain an accurate and deep understanding of someone or something. While eyesight is just the ability to see. Do you see? How accurate? How deep? How understandable is what you see?
There are some of us that either due to physical development or genetic reasons had use glasses to aid our physical eyesight. Thank God for the knowledge that He gave to opticians to diagnose and prescribe right glasses for different sight conditions so that people’s vision become clearer. Thank God there is a remedy. When insight is bad, it takes only God to provide the remedy.
Intellectually, it is possible to gain knowledge through studying which can lead to mental enlightenment, but it is only the power of God that can bring uncommon vision.
Certain young princes from Israel were selected to be taught the culture of Babylon, amongst them were Daniel, Shedrach, Meshack and Abednego. However the power of God upon the lives of those four made them uncommon (Dan 1:18-20).
Daniel 1:18-20 – Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king. And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
In matters of wisdom and understanding, may God grant you uncommon vision. May it be that the enchanters and magicians of life will not be able to match your understanding level.
Moses was born a Jew. His people were marginalised in Egypt during his time. He was privileged to be given the best education of his time in the courts of Pharaoh. However, what distinguished him in life was the uncommon vision that God gave him. He was tutored by God personally (Num. 12:1-9).
Numbers 12:6-8 – And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
Education can certainly bring knowledge. To stand out among the knowledgeable however, you need uncommon vision.
From the early times in human history, people have learnt the art of necromancy, witchcraft and sorcery in order to see hidden things, and sometimes they do see. However, it is only the Almighty God that can grant uncommon visions for the past and the future.
In Daniel 2:1-49, the magician of Babylon could not reveal the dream of King Nebuchadnezzar; neither could they give the interpretation. They confess that only a god could do so. But by the power of the living God, Daniel had an uncommon vision in which God revealed the dream and the interpretation to him.
May uncommon visions preserve your life and those of your loved ones.
May uncommon vision bring you before the nobles of life.
May uncommon vision bring unusual honours unto you.
In John 3:1-4, the very knowledgeable Nicodemus came to Jesus at night to know how to be in God’s kingdom. Jesus told him that he needed to be born again. One would think that at his level, he would just ask what is involved in such a spiritual experience, and not asking if he had to re-enter his mother’s tummy again! What a dull academician!
Many are professors today, even in Theology but very dumb. Instead of relying on inspiration and revelation from God, they rely on reasoning and logic.
You will not be a dullard in life.
In John 9: 39-41, Jesus opened he eyes of a man born blind and many scholars were against it, because it was a Sabbath. Jesus told them He came to the world to open the eyes of the blind and to shut the eyes of those that think they see.
– I knew a blind man while I was working at Cannon Street in London. No aid, no guide dogs. But he used to travel daily from Kent to City. He relied on his insight as his eyesight had failed him.
May your insight not fail.
May your eyesight not fail.
May your vision depend on God alone.
At a time in Prophet Eli’s life recorded in I Sam. 3:1-4, his eyes became dim as he was over 90 years of old. The greater concern was however that the word of God became rare and vision was scarce.
No direct word from God, no vision or dream! Very bad state to be. God had to wait for a baby to grow before He could start speaking again.
Do you still hear God speak?
Does He show you vision or dream?
You must earnestly desire it.
In I Kings 13:1-20, the old prophet in Bethel was abandoned by God and a young one from Jerusalem was sent there to speak to king Jeroboam by God. The old prophet must have compromised his stand with God because of recognition from the king.
Is there anything in your life that might block receiving speeches or visions from God?
Put such away and God will grant you great insights that come from Him.
May God not abandon you.
May you not be replaced.
May God wrath not rest upon you.
Almighty Father, let no one be able to resist my utterance or wisdom in life.
Almighty Father, let me be better than all astrologer and magicians of my time.
Almighty Father, reveal deep and secret things regarding my life to me and teach me how to order them
Almighty Father, do not let anything use the dark to hide in order to afflict my life.
