Eyes Wide Open

Elisha was the son of a farmer until Elijah invited him to follow him in the work of being a prophet (1 Kings 19:15-21). Elisha became his servant then. When Elijah was taken to heaven, Gehazi became Elisha’s servant. He was not called to prophesy. He seems to have simply been an employee, based on some of his actions when financial benefits were available (2 Kings 5:20-27).

When Elisha’s prophetic work stirred up the king of Aram by consistently revealing to the king of Israel what his plans were in the war they were fighting, the Aramean king discovered that Elisha was living in Dothan, and sent his army there by night to capture him (2 Kings 6:8-14.)

Gehazi went out the next morning, he saw the Aramean soldiers surrounding Dothan. He went to Elisha, thinking that he was informing him of the invasion. Elijah’s response was “Don’t be afraid – there are more with us than with them.” He then prayed that the Lord would open Gehazi’s eyes. Gehazi could then see warriors of fire surrounding the Arameans (2 Kings 6:15-23.)

If anyone would be potentially disqualified to receive revelation from the Spirit of God, Gehazi might be one. Still, a request that he could see in the spirit was answered. You are qualified to receive revelation. You are a family member to Yahweh. Born of Him, therefore able to see the Kingdom (John 3:3.)

Ask that you might see with spiritual eyes wide open. Expect it.
