Through Heaven's Eyes

There is more to life than meets the eye! As we live life here on earth the Bible teaches us that we ought to realign our perspective to God’s perspective or heaven’s perspective. When we look at life through heaven’s eyes we see what God originally intended for us to see in every season. The correct prescription of glasses or contact lenses will bring our view in focus. Choose heaven’s prescription! Look at life through heaven’s eyes…

2 Kings 6:14-17 – The Story of Elisha and the capture of Syrians. The servant sees an army greater than the Syrian Army as his spiritual eyes are opened.

As we run the race of life…we need times of realignment and refocusing our perspective. And when focus is restored…we can run with purpose. Focus is the key to breakthrough!
